  Jason Gray



Jason is a partner in our Asia Pacific litigation practice. He advises individuals and companies in complex white-collar crime matters and civil enforcement proceedings, government inquiries, cross-border and regulatory investigations and related litigation. His practice has an emphasis on defense of clients before government agencies as well as the conduct of proactive compliance reviews and internal investigations related to anti-corruption, economic sanctions, money laundering, corporate fraud and related matters.

The focus of much of Jason’s work is compliance with anti-bribery and corruption laws (ABC). He leads Allen & Overy’s U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) team throughout Asia-Pacific, and his experience under the FCPA, UK Bribery Act, Australian Criminal Code and related laws includes global investigations, the development of ABC compliance programs, and ABC due diligence in connection with corporate transactions.

Jason’s experience includes the conduct of investigations around the world, including throughout Asia, Africa and South America, and across numerous industries including technology, financial services, oil and gas, life sciences, food and beverage, and consumer goods. He is regularly involved in advising company boards and audit committees with respect to the many complicated issues that can arise in internal investigations, including consideration of disclosure to government and responding to whistle-blower complaints, as well as addressing cross-border discovery and data privacy issues.

Jason is consistently recognized as a leading individual in Chambers & Partners for Anti-Bribery & Corruption and in Legal 500 for Regulatory Compliance and Investigations. He wins high praise from clients as an "impressive lawyer" who is "very practical" and who "combines deep substantive knowledge with a pragmatism" that is particularly helpful in planning and conducting investigations. Clients also identify Jason as someone who is distinguished by "his swift grasp and clear exposition of complex issues".

Jason joined Allen & Overy from the New York office of a U.S.-headquartered global law firm where he was a counsel in the white-collar crime and government enforcement practice group.
