Fraud Investigations

Allen & Overy has a proven track record of achieving favourable outcomes for our clients in fraud investigations, with extensive experience of liaising with regulators including the UK Serious Fraud Office, the U.S. Department of Justice and numerous national and local authorities. 

We have been involved in some of the largest international fraud cases, including Maxwell, Madoff, Michael Brown, Solo Industries and KazakhGold.

Clients involved in fraud cases require counsel versed in diverse global markets because every jurisdiction treats privacy, data protection, employee protection and privilege issues differently.

Our global fraud investigations experience includes advising:

  • A Dutch telecoms company in civil, criminal and employment proceedings against (former) employees in relation to fraud concerning company property. Our team worked in close cooperation with the Public Prosecutor and was able to trace the proceeds of the crimes and to enter into settlements with the persons responsible.
  • A UK company on suspected employee fraud in its subsidiary in China, including overseeing and conducting an investigation into the fraud and advising on any relevant bribery and corruption concerns.
  • The Belgian and Austrian subsidiaries of a U.S.-based pharmaceutical company on internal investigations and criminal complaints relating to an IT fraud set up by an in-house accountant.  We advised our client on its internal investigation and filed criminal charges with the investigating magistrate on its behalf.
  • An international bank in investigating, and managing the consequences of, an internal fraud on the bank and related regulatory investigation and litigation. We assisted the bank in the internal investigation and advised on communications with various regulators in multiple jurisdictions.
