About Us

Michael Barron and Tim Law have developed the BO6 framework based on their combined experience of practical implementation of beneficial ownership reporting across four continents. They have advised governments on the requirements to meet FATF Recommendations, the EITI Standard 2019, OGP and what constitutes international best practice. They have produced scoping studies, drafted robust definitions, designed collection, verification, disclosure and enforcement mechanisms, drafted primary legislation and implementing regulations, advised on overcoming resistance and ensuring that users benefit from beneficial ownership information.
