Global investigations

A firm you can rely on.

Global companies are under scrutiny from a wider range of regulators than ever before.

The drivers behind enforcement actions are multiplying, too. Our multidisciplinary global investigations practice can help address these challenges wherever in the world they arise.

Clients have come to us on over 800 investigations mandates – many of which are multijurisdictional. Our team, which includes a number of former regulators and prosecutors, has successfully represented some of the largest banks, corporates and institutions on the highest-profile matters. Many investigations we handle involve alleged securities fraud, benchmark interest-rate manipulation, bribery, money-laundering, breaches of environment law and anti-competitive behaviour.

When a client is visited by the regulators or needs to investigate a part of its own business, we provide, from a single point of contact, a team that tackles all the complex issues that arise. Whether it is pre-investment due diligence, employee disciplinary matters, dealing with the authorities or follow-on litigation, our team provides 360° coverage.
