On Friday 19 February 2021, Russell Kennedy held our second session on Investigating Corporate Entities.
Corporate entities present a number of common challenges to investigators at all stages during an investigation. Complex ownership structures can make it difficult to identify the entity that is liable for the offence. Other challenges, if not identified, can lead to the inadmissibility of evidence. It is important for investigators and lawyers involved in prosecuting corporate entities to be aware of these challenges early in the investigation.
During the session Russell Kennedy’s Kylie Walsh, Principal, and Danielle Nicholson, Associate, discussed these common issues in light of some recent client scenarios and decisions.
Watch the webinar replay for:
- A brief overview of corporate legal identities;
- Identifying the correct corporate accused;
- Issuing notices to corporate entities;
- Director liability provisions; and
- Interviewing tips to ensure any admissions made are admissible against the corporate entity
