About the team

Government regulators and criminal prosecutors around the world continue to increase their focus on the activities of companies, wherever located, along with their senior officers, directors, and outside advisors. Successfully managing the risks arising from this increased focus requires a deep understanding of both the technical legal requirements of multiple jurisdictions and the practical concerns and investigative methods used by government regulators and criminal prosecutors.

We provide a ‘one stop shop’ to clients dealing with multiple regulators and other international government bodies, reducing the complexity involved in managing complex investigations and enforcement issues.
