Our relationships with regulatory authorities and our understanding of the regulatory frameworks around the world affords us a reputation as a leader for internal investigations advice; we regularly second our lawyers to regulators internationally and are involved in the development of policy in this area.
We have developed a detailed internal investigations protocol which provides clients with a framework for a “step-by-step” response where there is a suspicion of wrongdoing. This enables clients to work with us in order to manage their own internal investigations effectively, with particular regard to the possibility of external scrutiny and incident fallout. Such investigations are often complex, technical and extensive and the cost for businesses can be significant.
Our experience and credentials in a number of challenging jurisdictions, as well as our availability to advise on local and international laws, makes us ideally placed to manage the full investigation process for clients throughout Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia.
