Trimbach will appear at the ICAEW’s sole practitioners’ consultation day on 25 October.

Trimbach, who lectures on white-collar crime at the FBI Academy in Virginia, USA, will present ‘It Couldn’t Happen to Me – I’m a Sole Practitioner’.

In May, he visited the ICAEW and addressed it conference on forensic accounting held in Birmingham. He spoke to delegates about the impact of money laundering and how to combat it, in the wake of the 2001 terror attacks on America.

When interviewed by Accountancy Age at the time he said: ‘The key is to educate people in private industry, to share information to the extent law will allow.

‘If we’re going to combat money laundering, we’ve all got to work together. We’ve got to ensure institutions comply with regulatory statutes and reporting requirements. And they do for the most part.’
