Fraud is estimated to cost US$4.23 trillion worldwide. The risk of falling victim to fraud and other white collar and corporate crime raises significant reputational risks for companies and individuals, not least of which is the potential exposure to highly damaging civil, criminal and administrative sanctions,
Acting in such complex and sensitive matters requires more than an understanding of the legal issues. It calls for a strategic and seamless approach, the ability to deal with a range of different law enforcement agencies and regulators, advising on contentious and non-contentious aspects and related issues such as public relations, shareholder communications, insurance and employment issues.
Our world-class corporate crime and investigations team specialises in global white collar crime compliance and investigations work in more than 40 countries across Asia, Australia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and the US.
We work on clients' most significant cases, whether in terms of size, complexity or sensitivity, with a particular specialism in those involving multiple jurisdictions, regulators and law enforcement bodies.
We can help you with all aspects of corporate criminal matters including defending companies, senior executives and employees in prosecutions or enforcement actions. We advise on settlements with prosecutors and regulators, asset tracing and recovery, and also associated disputes including contentious employment proceedings.
