Joe Wielebinski recently spoke to the attendees of the 2013 FraudNet Conference held in Oslo, Norway. FraudNet, the world’s leading asset recovery legal network ranked by Chambers & Partners, is a global network of lawyers specialized in asset tracing and recovery. FraudNet provides victims of fraud with the possibility of retaining the best asset recovery professionals in the targeted jurisdictions and access to an international rapid deployment force to recover their stolen assets.
Joe, along with FraudNet member Kathy Phelps, analyzed the future of fraud and developing trends with a particular focus on Ponzi schemes and litigation claims arising out of financial fraud. Their presentation entitled, "The Pervasiveness of Fraud and Corruption and How It's Been (and is Being) Addressed", is available to view here, for further detail.
FraudNet members make a dedicated effort to meet every six months in different jurisdictions to learn the latest developments in asset recovery and financial crimes, as well as the newest techniques that have been tested within each member’s respective jurisdiction. These regular meetings help build strong relationships among all the people who will be involved on the ground in major cases around the world.
