  Jason Gray

Partner

Sydney

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

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

Jason is 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 a lawyer who is “very practical” and 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 Jason as "an impressive lawyer who is very strong with regulatory matters" and someone who is distinguished by “his swift grasp and clear exposition of complex issues”. 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 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.

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 compliance programs designed to prevent and detect potential violations of law.

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.
