image: Managing Fraud Risks Managing Fraud Risks

- Bribery and corruption are ongoing challenges in the Baltics, said Marilin Pikaro as she commenced SCCE’s Tuesday 21 March Morning Seminar on How to Manage Fraud Risks, arranged in cooperation with Cobalt Law Firm and Ernst & Young Baltic.


Marilin Pikaro is a Certified Fraud Examiner at Ernst & Young Baltic and gave us a presentation focusing on how to detect a fraudster.

- When unusual financial activity is suspected, we at Ernst & Young Baltic can investigate, perform electronic evidence discovery, and review financial reports, all with the sensitivity and urgency required. And if necessary, we can provide expert witness testimony to explain our findings, said Marilin Pikaro.


Pirkko-Liis Harkmaa, Partner and Attorney at law at Cobalt Law Firm, continued our seminar and addressed important issues connected to legal strategies for managing fraud risks and related liability, and how to prepare for a potential fraud case and hold a fraudster liable.

- It is essential that prevention and coping strategies are in place internally and that common mistakes, like passive management and acting before all circumstances are clear, are avoided, said Pirkko-Liis Harkmaa.


Egon Talur, Partner and Head of the Tax Practice Group at Cobalt Law Firm, concluded our seminar with an insightful presentation on the risk of a huge potential tax bill, in addition to suffered losses, as a reason for additional precaution.


On behalf of the SCCE, I would like to thank Marilin Pikaro, Pirkko-Liis Harkmaa and Egon Talur for their very interesting presentations, and I am also happy to forward their contacts:
