UK: Law Commission – a couple of developments: intermediated securities; corporate criminal liability

A belated return to updating this blog, with apologies for my absence. Has it really been several months since the last post? Perhaps that question is best not answered. I will, instead, move quickly on to note a couple of initiatives from the Law Commission: [1] Today, the publication of a scoping paper as part of the project on intermediated securities, outlining problems and potential solutions; and [2] Earlier this month, the start of a new project on corporate criminal liability (see the terms of reference here, pdf).
