Our White Collar Crime & Investigations team offers an award-winning service to clients, whether companies in need of advice in respect of suspected fraud or bribery by employees or individuals who are themselves under investigation.
We quickly assess the problem and help you to navigate a way out. We are adept at bringing matters to a swift conclusion often without ever having to go to court. If a trial is unavoidable we believe in fiercely defending our clients' interests and fighting to achieve the best result possible.
Our team offers a dynamic and creative approach to whatever issue you face. Increasingly, cases are multi-faceted, with several agencies having overlapping interests and with civil claimants waiting in the wings for follow on actions. We act for clients facing investigation by regulators and law enforcement agencies in the UK, Europe, the US, Africa and Asia. We are experienced in multi-jurisdictional fraud and corruption investigations, frequently working with overseas lawyers and other professional advisors.
We have been involved in some of the biggest domestic and international fraud and corruption cases ever to be investigated. Our extradition lawyers have resisted extradition requests from countries as diverse as Russia, India, Monaco and Romania.
Our lawyers have advised on numerous cases involving mutual legal assistance, criminal sanctions, money laundering, fraud, corruption, insider dealing and civil recovery and Unexplained Wealth orders. Our team is diverse, drawn from top boutique defence practices, the Bar and the CPS. As a result we are able to offer a strategic approach that is sophisticated and well thought out. We are also able to call on the firm's reputation lawyers to manage difficult press and social media situations; we have a top tier employment team able to give advice to employer or employee involved in an investigation and we can offer immigration advice to those who are the subject of extradition proceedings. One of our partners is a barrister, able to appear in court thus reducing time and cost in respect of some hearings.
