Business Crime & Investigations

An investigation, whether internal or external, can be a serious threat to your reputation and your business. With criminal and regulatory authorities around the world working together more than ever before, a coordinated international response is often critical to achieving the best outcome. Our team of business crime & investigations lawyers have extensive expertise at the cutting edge of complex multi-jurisdictional enforcement.

Our global expertise across the U.S., UK, Europe and Asia covers the full range of business crime including bribery and corruption, fraud, money laundering, compliance, sanctions, market abuse and all aspects of corporate misconduct. This experience, together with our strong footprint in our local offices, makes us particularly well-placed to advise clients on the strategic decisions they face before, during and after enforcement proceedings.

Our team features senior prosecutors and regulators from key enforcement agencies, amongst them the former chief prosecutor for England & Wales, Alison Saunders. Their combined experience allows us to help our clients navigate the most challenging investigations involving multiple agencies around the world.

We have a deep understanding of what can go wrong and what “good” compliance looks like. Building on our investigations expertise, we work closely with our clients to put them in the best position to prevent, detect and address business crime issues before they become an existential threat.
