LONDON, September 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ --

- Forum Pledges Cooperation to Secure a Business Environment Free From Corruption

World-Check will again sponsor this year's annual World Compliance Leadership Forum. The Forum, now in its 6th successful year, will take place at Brocket Hall from the 30th September to the 1st October and is the foremost global gathering of leading compliance and law enforcement professionals from the Financial, Legal, Corporate and Government sectors representing some of the world's largest financial institutions and corporations.

Over 50 delegates are expected to attend the invitation-only event from all corners of the globe with special addresses from Peter Clarke, Former Head of the Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) and currently a non-executive Director of the Serious Organised Crime Agency; Frederick Lord, Assistant Director INTERPOL Anti-Corruption Office (IACO) and James M. Lord, Assistant United States Attorney in Washington along with a number of other world renowned experts on compliance and the prevention of financial crime. For a full list of speakers please visit the Forum's site at

According to Dan Peak, chief executive of World-Check, "The Forum is unique in that it provides a platform for the global leaders from both regulators, enforcement agencies and industry to come together to debate and discuss the current issues and trends in legislation, policy and strategy in a closed environment in order to obtain crucial insights into how to combat corruption and international white collar crime."

"Today companies and their decision-makers face extremely high civil and criminal penalties for violation of international regulations and sanctions, notwithstanding the reputational damage a business can sustain for failing to administer sound internal controls and procedures. No other event gives international business leaders the opportunity of exploring current and emerging developments with regulators and enforcement agencies themselves to facilitate the sharing of global best practice in the prevention of fraud, corruption and money laundering."
