Corporate Investigations

As a top-tier firm, we have extensive experience in conducting in-depth corporate investigations, providing our clients with strategic advice regarding investigation findings, and advising our clients in subsequent proceedings before the relevant authorities and courts.

Within different sectors of the economy, the number and complexity of investigations and enforcement actions by public authorities have increased over the years. Based on our reputation and expertise, we have been involved in numerous large corporate investigations over the last few years in various sectors, including the construction, chemicals, telecom, real estate, financial, oil drilling, and ICT sectors.

Services

As part of our wide-ranging service, we have particular expertise and extensive experience in the areas of white-collar crime (including US FCPA and UK Bribery Act related matters), antitrust, financial regulatory, high-profile bankruptcy, public law, corporate law, tax law, labour law, and litigation.

We are known for having integrated teams that combine cutting-edge legal expertise with quick, well-organised and “tailor-made” corporate investigations in domestic and international matters. Our teams are organised to reflect the nature of the matter and consist of experts with the right level of experience.

We act swiftly in situations where timing is of the essence (e.g. in whistle-blowing cases). Through our integrated teams, we can follow the impact of current developments in each field and how they are interrelated. In cases that are likely to attract publicity, we also assist with press strategy. Alongside this, we have well-established relationships with various IT and forensic experts and work together with leading law firms in other jurisdictions (in particular the US).
