Managing your white collar and corporate crime risks
Public scrutiny, cross-border cooperation and pressure on governments to respond to alleged corporate misconduct are driving increases in criminal liabilities, prosecutions and penalties for non-compliance. We know first hand how lawyers and prosecutors engage and proceed. We have a record of keeping clients out of the courts and the public spotlight.
Companies turn to us when they face complex, white collar and corporate crime investigations. These are often high profile, creating a need to resolve cases discreetly while managing clients’ reputations. We handle all types of internal and regulatory investigations into issues such as fraud, cartels, tax and accounting, financial misconduct, dawn raids, and bribery and corruption.
Globally, our team has 70+ former enforcement agency officials, including 30+ former federal prosecutors from US attorneys’ offices. We have a cross-disciplinary workplace misconduct investigation task force, which handles harassment, retaliation, discrimination and other alleged misconduct involving senior leaders. If you need to self-report issues, we guide you and advise on remedial action. And if you want to fight a case, there’s no better team to have in your corner. You can rely on our support in response to regulators’ investigations and appearing before panels, tribunals and committees.
