Additionally as exhibited by our highly successful flagship Asset Recovery event in Dublin the conference will also attract the leading civil fraud practitioners, insolvency practitioners and litigators from across the globe.

The Digital Age and Digital Currency Fraud

Cryptocurrency fraud and scams are rampant, but it’s often unclear how to devise a recovery strategy and plan a litigation against potentially unknown defendants. This session will explain the strategies employed to freeze misappropriated assets in a high-value cryptocurrency fraud. 

The panelists will assess all variables that must be considered when executing a recovery strategy and possible models that can be used to recover assets in similar cases.

1Malaysia Development Bhd the world's biggest financial scandal

Set up in 2009, 1MDB was intended to turn Kuala Lumpur into a financial hub and boost the economy through strategic investments. Instead it has funded a national scandal with investigations in at least half a dozen countries including the US and Switzerland. 

Implicating Malaysia's highest ranking officials, including the not-so-anonymous “Malaysian Official 1”, former US attorney general Loretta Lynch, described it as “the largest kleptocracy case” in US history.
