EU Data Privacy Laws Pose Disclosure Risks In Fraud Probes - Louise Hodges quoted in Law360

13 February 2020

Louise Hodges, Partner & Head of Department for the Criminal Litigation Team has been quoted in Law360 surrounding EU data privacy laws and the disclosure risks posed in fraud probes.


Britain's Serious Fraud Office has stepped up its call for companies to assist with investigations. The agency's new guidance calls for businesses to focus on preserving and providing material, digital and physical evidence and financial records and analysis.

Louise quoted:

But it's guidance is "silent on key areas" that will be of concern to the company, including data protection issues, which have become ever more complex with GDPR and in particular when looking at cross-border investigations."
