In this session, author and journalist Oliver Bullough will discuss the extent of corruption and dishonesty in global business and politics, how the perpetrators are able to get away with it, and its effect on democracy.

When he's not investigating and writing books and articles, Oliver runs kleptocracy tours in London, where he points out properties owned by the corrupt.

While London is a favorite haunt of kleptocracts, Bullough says that one of the best places to form a shell company to conceal dishonest activity is ... the USA.

Even boxing promoters would be envious of the hype surrounding blockchain technology.

Blockchain will revolutionize the way business is conducted, end corruption in elections, let you know where the food you ate came from, and, generally, re-shape the world order. Or so the marketing goes.

Virtually all offshore jurisdictions are attempting to become the go-to jurisdiction for FinTech start-ups and some, like Bermuda, have gone all-in.

In this session, we will tell you why almost everything you read about blockchain is wrong and explain what the technology can potentially be used for and what it can't.

Obtaining a judgment in a British Commonwealth jurisdiction, whether in the United Kingdom or one of its offshore territories, is no easy feat. The sad truth is that wining the case might have been the easy part. Enforcing a judgment when there are few or no assets in the jurisdiction issuing the writ can involve complex cross-border litigation.

Execution of a judgment is even more difficult when assets, or individuals subject to the judgment, are in the United States, where a web of federal and fifty different state laws can stymie even the most tenacious judgment-holder.

This session will explore the process and methods to enforce foreign judgments in the U.S., and impart practical tips to do so quickly and efficiently. It will also show how U.S.-based agencies can reach offshore activity.

This session was recorded on Monday, November 12, 2018 in London at The OffshoreAlert Conference on Financial Intelligence & Investigations.

In the early 1990s, Information Technology specialist Klaus Lins claimed to have discovered evidence that Liechtenstein's biggest fiduciary was misappropriating the assets of wealthy clients when they died, instead of distributing them to beneficiaries. Lins turned whistleblower but the only person who went to prison was him, for data theft. He also lost his home and his wife and he has since passed away. When one German beneficiary turned up at the fiduciary's office in Liechtenstein, she was allegedly fobbed off with lies.

More recently, the family of Israeli tycoon Israel Perry has been waging a bitter legal war against a trust company in Liechtenstein in a so-far vain attempt to gain access to the deceased's vast fortune.

This session will look at allegations of impropriety against Liechtenstein-based fiduciaries, whether a culture of criminality exists in the jurisdiction, and potential legal remedies for beneficiaries who suspect they have been swindled.
