Session 13: A false dichotomy? Dishonesty and Lack of Integrity Revisited

28 February 2024

Speakers: David Turner KC and Conor Ewing

David Turner KC and Conor Ewing will address the question of whether there is a true distinction between dishonesty and lack of integrity, considering:

  • The evolution of the civil test for dishonesty, from Twinsectra v Yardley to Ivey v Genting Casinos
  • The regulatory offence of acting without integrity
  • Squaring the circle: Jackson LJ’s judgment in Wingate v FCA
  • The dichotomy in practice: the approach of the Courts, regulators and tribunals

The session should be attended by anyone practising in the field of professional discipline, whether on the regulatory side or for respondents to regulatory proceedings.
