Corporate Investigations

Situations in corporate life can develop surprisingly quickly into crises. Corporate criminal liability and exterritorial effects of anticorruption legislation such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, UK Bribery Act, SAPIN II law and many others impose additional burdens on companies, as regulators and law enforcement agencies are under increasing pressure to investigate and prosecute companies and individuals for criminal misconduct and regulatory breaches. As a director, you may even find yourself personally liable for alleged wrong-doing in the course of business. When your personal and company reputation is at stake or large compensation claims threaten your corporate existence, a timely and right response is key.

We are familiar with the risks you are exposed to when conducting business in Central and Eastern Europe. Our experienced regional Corporate Investigations team can guide you through situations involving large-scale corporate events or cross-border investigations. No matter what industry sector you operate in, we can structure a corporate investigation in a way that your legal privilege will be preserved and no reporting duty triggered. We can advise you in relation to allegations of fraud, bribery and corruption, breach of financial or trade sanctions, cartel investigations, insider trading, money laundering and other types of financial misconduct.

You can rely on our regional expertise and our ability to put together exactly the right team of data protection, compliance, employment and white collar crime experts for your investigation; in any country or countries in the region. We are familiar with the use of e Discovery technology and give independent advice on the best available solutions for your situation. We can also help you with your crisis communication and on the best approach to enforcement authorities. And, as prevention is better than cure; we can of course provide you with a full risk assessment and assist with the implementation of effective processes and controls to limit the threat to you and your company.

We offer a single point of contact for your corporate investigations in the region.
