External investigations


Our external investigations practice covers advice on all stages of investigations brought by regulatory authorities in relation to breaches of regulation and allegations of fraud, bribery and misconduct.

In addition to some of the most significant actions brought by the UK’s Financial Services Authority (FSA) in recent years, we have advised on proceedings brought by the UK’s Serious Fraud Office, the UK Office of Fair Trading and London Stock Exchange, the US Securities and Exchange Commission and Department of Justice, and investigations by local regulators throughout the world.

Our London team works seamlessly with our offices across the globe on international investigations throughout Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, Africa and the Middle East, frequently handling challenging issues connected with cross-border document production, such as privilege and data privacy.

Our team has experience in the most significant SFO investigations and prosecutions of companies, board members and individuals in global anti-corruption operations including Innospec, Mabey and Johnson and Securency.
