As much as we would like it to not happen at all, white collar criminality is a widespread problem in business relations. Fraud and corruption cause significant losses to companies, investors and employees, but we are well-equipped to deal with this. Whether you are currently facing a crisis or want to take preventive steps to safeguard your business or organisation from future violations, we provide skilled and experienced legal assistance and representation. In these matters we are connected not just regionally but globally, with a network of consultants to assist us in our investigative work outside the region.
Whatever the specifics of your company or public sector organisation, you can depend on us to carry out a thorough risk analysis, paying meticulous attention to detail as we do so. We analyse the risks from multiple angles, including studying governance and policy documents, and existing procedures for risk management and reporting, as well as assessing risk awareness among employees. Based on that risk analysis, we can then help you design and implement measures tailored to your exact needs: policy documents, internal guidelines, processes and procedures, as well as hands-on awareness training.
In legal due diligence and review phases of transactions risk management plays an important role. Clients value our independent assessment of the integrity and corruption risks that may exist within their own companies and organisations, as well as those of third parties.
Corporate crime investigation and defence
We have extensive experience in conducting a broad range of investigations of companies and public sector organisations – with discretion and subject to the protection of legal privilege. Our clients entrust us with clarifying a specific sequence of events, collecting evidence and identifying and analysing any relevant legal issues, as well as negotiating trustfully with law enforcement authorities, if necessary. Our connected teams can address any criminal, regulatory, civil or company law liabilities, and solve any related employment law issues that arise. If your company is facing a criminal prosecution, we will help protect your rights in pre-trial investigations and in courts of all instances.
If your company is suffering from corrupt or fraudulent managers and employees, we will help take over, support you through the crisis and get you back to normal operations as soon as possible. We will also assist with asset tracking and recovery.
