Legal Beagle Expert Speaker Nadia Lazareva
Tell us about yourself: What is your expertise, and how did you become an expert in the area?
A lawyer by background, I have been working in the risk management industry for over 10 years. Throughout my career, I’ve worked for corporate service providers, a magic circle law firm, and currently I’m looking after financial crime risk in a large international financial institution.
Online training in the legal industry is relatively new in Hong Kong – why did you take a chance and become a speaker for Legal Beagle?
For me, it’s important to come to work every day thinking that my actions can make the world a little but better. I’m passionate about the role private sector can play in counteracting financial crime risk. I see immediate connection between money laundering, drug trafficking and murder, corruption and child sexual exploitation, etc. I hope that by sharing knowledge on financial crime risk we could raise the bar in the industry and make the lives of financial crime actors more difficult.
