Corporate Crime, Compliance and Forensics

United Kingdom

In an enforcement environment that is constantly evolving, our team assists clients with all aspects of corporate crime, compliance and forensics. This includes:

  •  developing controls to prevent wrongdoing occurring in your business 
  • understanding and navigating the legal issues and risks when allegations or concerns arise 
  • conducting legally defensible and (where available) legally privileged investigations, while recognising the wider risks and obligations created by the issue at hand.

Supported by a global team of over 400 expert lawyers, our UK team regularly advises corporates and individuals across multiple jurisdictions on financial crime and all other areas of criminal and regulatory risk (be it competition, cyber, environmental, health and safety or otherwise). 

Whether you want a strategy to avoid regulatory investigations, or a way to minimise the impact of unforeseen corporate crime or regulatory failure, we will provide you with clear and pragmatic advice tailored to your needs.

We understand how stressful and time-critical these matters are, with individuals facing the prospect of losing their livelihoods or even their liberty. To support our clients, our CMS Evidence collection, review and disclosure technology provides fast access to critical data; and our 24/7 Emergency Response hotline ensures we are available whenever you need us during a crisis.
