  Jason Gray

Partner

Sydney

Jason advises individuals and companies in complex white-collar crime matters, regulatory investigations and associated litigation. His practice has an emphasis on defense of clients before government enforcement agencies, internal investigations, compliance counseling and due diligence regarding third parties and corporate transactions.

The focus of much of Jason’s work is compliance with anti-bribery and corruption laws, particularly the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). He leads Allen & Overy’s FCPA and U.S. white collar practice throughout Asia-Pacific. His knowledge also extends across the UK and Australian anti-bribery regimes.

Jason is recognized as a leading individual for Anti-Bribery & Corruption in Chambers & Partners 2017. He wins high praise from clients as a lawyer who “combines deep substantive knowledge with a pragmatism that is particularly helpful in supporting the planning and conduct of internal investigations.” Chambers also notes that clients “identify his swift grasp and clear exposition of complex issues as additional key qualities” and he is further distinguished by “an extensive, experience-based knowledge of U.S. anti-bribery and corruption laws [particularly the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act] and white-collar crime [laws and regulations].”

Jason’s experience includes the conduct of internal investigations around the world, including throughout Asia, Africa and South America, and across numerous industries, including technology, oil and gas, life sciences, food and beverage, and consumer goods. He is regularly involved in advising companies, 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.

In addition, Jason has wide ranging experience in the conduct of anti-bribery and corruption due diligence in the context of complex corporate transactions, as well as working with clients to proactively review, enhance or develop tailored compliance programs designed to prevent and detect potential violations of law.

Jason joined Allen & Overy from the New York office of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP where he was a counsel in the white collar crime and government enforcement practice group.
