Seminars, etc.

I present seminars, lectures and briefings for the financial sector, for judges, prosecutors and investigators. I present seminars, conference papers, after-dinner speeches and briefings, in English, all over the world.

Training for investigators and prosecutors usually concentrates on financial data. However, financial data is only one part of the picture. In this course, Nigel Morris-Cotterill examines the use of non-structured, non-financial information.

In relation to financial crime, national laws are increasingly homogenised dealing first with money laundering, then terrorist financing, bribery, even tax evasion and sanctions.

Learning the principles of the globalisation of laws is important and there are many people, including me, who will lecture on that subject where required.

However, there is another, far more complex subject, where my extensive experience and research delivers both intellectual and practical tools specifically designed to help judges understand one of the most complex areas of financial crime trials...

Nigel Morris-Cotterill first investigated the use of virtual currencies for financial crime in 1996. At the same time, he also examined alternative payment systems and the use of a variety of trade payments mechanisms, both legal and illegal, which would facilitate money laundering and other financial crime.

Today, he watches developments and says "welcome to the world I told you was coming."

Course Information


The maritime and shipping industry is central to the movement of goods, including goods that some governments do not want moved. These include arms and goods that are subject to sanctions for any one of a range of reasons from four-wheel drive vehicles that are subject to "dual use" provisions to items that are capable of use in the production of weapons of mass destruction.

Every so often, a regulator in a major financial centre says that levels of market abuse are causing concern. That triggers investigations and those investigations, increasingly, involve regulators in other jurisdictions.

The regulation and risk management of market abuse is becoming increasingly complex.
