David Fein Featured in Deloitte’s The Green Room Podcast on Financial Crime

June 6, 2023

Litigation special counsel David Fein participated in the most recent episode of Deloitte’s The Green Room podcast to discuss financial crime. In “What’s the truth behind financial crime?” David discusses what drives financial crime; the human and societal cost of financial crime when those fighting against it have a less than 1% recovery rate; and potential solutions to the problem, among other topics.

“People think of financial crime as a victimless crime; it’s just a money transaction,” says David. “But these crimes are hugely wrought with victims.”

David also notes that transnational criminal organizations don’t operate in the same silos that governments and regulators often do, and that while there is much to be done to break down those silos, there have also been some promising developments, namely in the international community’s proven ability to swiftly coordinate a robust sanctions response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“If we can be in constant dialogue with one another—create ways of sharing information that are appropriate, that are legitimate, that are transparent, but that are at speed and full—we can go after things so much better,” David adds. “So I’m very excited about those kinds of initiatives.”
