Jeff Lane to attend The UN International Colloquium on Civil Asset Tracing and Recovery


Tanner De Witt’s Jeff Lane will be attending The International Colloquium on Civil Asset Tracing and Recovery on 5 December 2019.

The Colloquium will be held in Vienna after the fifty-sixth session of Working Group V (Insolvency Law) of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL). This invite-only conference brings together world experts in both criminal and civil law tracing and recovery to explore and develop the legal resources available in their respective jurisdictions, and to identify jurisdictional differences, problems arising from those differences, and ways to overcome them. This focus will help coalesce these international elements into a coordinated international response directive on asset tracing and recovery.

At the colloquium, Jeff hopes to meet fellow fraud practitioners and to share his extensive domestic and multi-jurisdictional financial fraud and asset tracing experience to help advance the efficacy of tools available to legal professionals around the world.

The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law is the core legal body of the United Nations system in the field of international trade law. A legal body with universal membership specialising in commercial law reform worldwide for over 50 years, UNCITRAL’s business is the modernisation and harmonisation of rules on international business.
