Being subject to a criminal or regulatory investigation can be a devastating event. When the stakes couldn’t be higher or the consequences more serious, you need lawyers who understand the system. Our experts can help.
Individuals and organisations come to us when they are in trouble or fear they may be exposed to an investigation. Many of our cases involve accusations of corporate fraud, financial crime, bribery and corruption and are investigated by the Serious Fraud Office, Financial Conduct Authority, National Crime Agency, HMRC or the Insolvency Service. As their cases develop, we give our clients the best legal and tactical advice, in language they understand, so that they know what’s happening and why.
Rapid changes in the legal and regulatory landscape mean that businesses and individuals can unknowingly find themselves on the wrong side of the law. The issues facing these businesses and senior executives are often cross-jurisdictional and may involve a combination of criminal, and regulatory and civil law issues.
As well as employees who find themselves in the midst of a corporate scandal, we represent celebrities, politicians and high-net-worth individuals. They trust us to devise an effective strategy while keeping their names out of the press.
With our specialist business crime lawyers, you’ll have a team behind you that’s easy to work with. A team that’s seen and done it all and who combine the right technical expertise with a commercial awareness of how the system works and what it takes to protect your interests.
The team draws upon its experience, reputation and global network to co-ordinate the appropriate team for any given situation.
