Robert TARG - Attorney - international-finanical crimesThe threats of serious financial crime and abuse in both the public and private sector are many. The resources that can be deployed in protecting both economies and institutions are best placed by taking preventive measures.  However, in the complex world in which we live, the issues are not always straightforward. In some instances, preventative measures place additional legal and regulatory burdens on those institutions that mind other peoples’ wealth. Notwithstanding exposure to new and difficult risks, the private sector can be a valuable asset in pursing criminals. The Thirty-First International Symposium on Economic Crime at Jesus College, Cambridge, from September 1 through 8, 2013 will address the legal and practical problems of exposure, as well as a wide variety of topics relevant to the control of economic crime, worldwide.

As in previous years, the Symposium is expecting to provide over 1,000 participants from around the world a vehicle for those involved, at whatever level, in protecting the integrity of their institution or society. Additionally, participants will meet to explore with other attendees how more meaningful international understanding and cooperation may be fostered.

The Symposium is organized by a number of leading academic and research institutions around the world, including the University of Cambridge, with the support of numerous governments and international organizations on a non-profit making basis.

The law firm of Diaz Reus & Targ is pleased to announce that partner Robert Targ has again, for the fourth year, been called upon to speak at the symposium and participate in a panel discussion. Drawing on his vast experience in cross border financial crime and import-export legal issues, Bob will deliver a paper focused on the role of financial intelligence in assisting in measures designed to disrupt serious criminal activity and collateral impact to innocent third parties.

We encourage interested parties to join us for this collaborative symposium. If you would like more information, or to register for this event, visit, www.crimesymposium.org. We hope to see you there.
