Criminal and civil intertwined

September 22, 2017, Commercial Dispute Resolution

Ian Hargreaves chaired the fourth panel of CDR's Summer Litigation Symposium and is quoted in a Commercial Dispute Resolution article regarding the complexities of handling investigations and disputes with both criminal and civil law aspects. According to Hargreaves, with the recent implementation of various pieces of legislation, such as the Criminal Finances Act 2017, litigators have to deal with a real growth of criminal and regulatory work. “English commercial litigators would ordinarily look at the relief that could be obtained from the civil and commercial courts without even considering the criminal issues, but that has very much changed and in a sense we’ve caught up with some of our continental counterparts where the criminal code is very important and in some cases is the first port of call," he says.
