Regulatory Agencies and Prosecuting Authorities

Our experienced team knows that allegations faced by individuals and corporations relating to white-collar offences incorporate, in many cases, suspicions of wrongdoing across multiple borders, resulting in multi-authority and multi-agency investigations.

Regulatory Agencies and Prosecuting Authorities

As such, any investigation may involve both prosecuting authorities and regulatory agencies across numerous jurisdictions, including the Department of Justice and Securities and Exchange Commission in the US, and UK agencies such as the Serious Fraud Office and Financial Conduct Authority .

We regularly advise on international investigations in which numerous agencies may be acting. Our clients benefit from our wealth of experience leading in international multi-jurisdictional investigations alongside French and US prosecution authorities.

We fully understand that the broad spectrum of agencies in Europe, together with multijurisdictional bodies such as Interpol and Europol, can mean that an investigation has to be defended on a number of fronts.  We expertly ensure that a robust defence is put forward for our clients, irrespective of which jurisdiction the challenges may come from.  We are also well adept at defending those who find themselves subject to an extradition request.
