Barry Vitou: Is the SFO here to stay?

Barry Vitou, a partner in Pinsent Masons in London and head of their Global Corporate Crime Team, talked with me this week about the future of the SFO.

We also talked about the “Blockbuster Funding” the SFO uses for special investigations, morale at the organization, and the challenges the SFO faces dealing with the press, public, and its government masters.

Finally, Barry spoke about Brexit and UK enforcement.

Here’s our 17-minute conversation.
