Investigations

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. A transition period, during which EU laws continue to apply in the UK, is due to end on 31 December 2020. The UK/EU Withdrawal Agreement sets out transitional arrangements and negotiations for the future UK/EU relationship are ongoing.

Internal Investigations

Our world leading investigations practice has a depth of experience that means that we can provide a comprehensive response when an organisation is facing issues that may give rise to potential civil, criminal, regulatory or employment issues, as well as potential reputational or commercial damage.

We recognise that each investigation is unique and requires a bespoke response that minimises disruption and protects the organisation's interests from the outset. We have conducted investigations for clients of all sizes, from multinational FTSE 100 companies or sovereign wealth funds, to universities or small charities, and we are able to tailor our response accordingly. 

The expertise and experience we have allows us to act quickly, to identify the issues and put in place an effective strategy. We advise on all aspects of an investigation, including whether a corporate should consider self-reporting to an enforcement body or regulator, how to deal with a whistle-blower scenario, and we are able to draw on specialist teams when urgent injunctive measures are necessary.

Uniquely, we can also work with our in-house eDiscovery function, MDR Discover, and in-house analysts at MDR Cyber, which means that we can act without delay and in a way that is cost-efficient. Further, the matters we deal with frequently engage cross-border matters and we can draw on our extensive network to ensure that the best strategy is pursued globally.

We are also able to act proactively to mitigate the risk of issues arising and offer compliance training or audits of an organisation's processes and controls, with a depth of expertise across ESG areas, with particular expertise in managing financial crime risks.
