Regulatory Investigations and White Collar Defence

In recent years, government regulators and criminal prosecutors around the world have continued to increase attention to the activities of banks and corporations, wherever located, along with their senior officers, directors, and outside advisors.

Successfully managing the risks arising from this increased focus requires a deep understanding of both the technical legal requirements of multiple jurisdictions and the practical concerns and investigative methods used by government regulators and criminal prosecutors. Most importantly, early identification of potential criminal and civil liability risks will provide the best opportunity for effectively crafting a response that protects the long-term interests of the client in all relevant jurisdictions.
