Financial crime and compliance
Businesses are coming under increased pressures in a world which is now highly regulated and commercially challenging. Ensuring that Companies and those who run them keep within the law can be difficult and complex.
Our Corporate Crime and Compliance team, headed by Euros Jones is dedicated to providing the best advice in doing so on all aspects of corporate crime and compliance.
This multi disciplinary team is able to deal with complex issues spanning criminal, civil and regulatory issues across many jurisdictions in a flexible, efficient and cost effective and sensitive way.
We understand what your end goal is and are committed to help you achieve it.
We get results through our experience of all aspects of corporate crime and compliance issues, from preventative advice, through internal investigations to defending corporates and individuals in criminal investigations and bringing private prosecutions.
We act for clients across all sectors in criminal investigations and prosecutions brought by enforcement and prosecution authorities including the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), the police and Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
Our areas of expertise include acting for both corporates and individuals on matters involving issues such as fraud and corporate crime, bribery and corruption, money laundering, and data protection breaches. The team is currently engaged in representing corporates and individuals in a number of corruption and fraud investigations across various sectors.
We also provide preventative compliance advice to corporates which helps limit the risk and exposure to criminal and regulatory sanction. We offer training and e learning packages which augment that service.
Our internal investigations offering helps corporates to identify any internal issues and highlights any potential criminal or regulatory exposure.
Our 24/7 service allows for immediate advice to corporates faced with dawn raids, disclosure and privilege issues and for representation of individuals facing criminal investigations.
