We have been, and continue to be, involved in many of the most significant and high profile international white-collar crime and regulatory investigations of the last decade. We have acted for, and currently act for, governments, listed multinationals, top-tier banks, and C-suite executives.
We provide everything from initial due diligence and compliance advice through to acting as trial counsel for companies and executives facing prosecution.
We build the right team to suit the specific needs of our clients on a case-by-case basis.
We work where our clients work and have real, on-the ground experience in over 20 jurisdictions across the globe, including conducting long-running projects with teams based within our clients’ offices, and have conducted effective, technology driven remote investigations in relation to dozens of others.
The exclusive and specialised nature of our practice means we are generally conflict-free.
Flexible Fee Structures
Our years of experience operating on fixed fee and flexible pricing models means that our clients benefit from transparency, certainty and the ability to budget regardless of the complexity or size of the matter.
We provide high-quality, commercially focussed, advice on a full spectrum of regulatory issues ranging from compliance and risk through to full blown litigation.
We work with clients across a range of sectors, including Construction & Engineering, Defence & Aerospace, Energy, Extractives, Financial Services, Logistics & Supply Chain, and Sport.
We work wherever our clients need us to work and have wide-ranging experience of overseas investigations and litigation.
Almost all of our work involves an international element and we have on the ground experience in numerous jurisdictions including Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and the the Americas.
We can bring together the right team to meet the requirements of your matter whatever the location, complexity and size.
