Financial Crime

Our experts provide advice and assistance across a wide range of investigations and prosecutions instigated by the criminal and regulatory authorities relating to business crime (fraud/conspiracy), money laundering, bribery and corruption, market manipulation/insider dealing.

We have particular experience in acting in cross border investigations by multiple authorities in different jurisdictions.

We are regularly called on by our corporate clients to advise on bribery risk under the Bribery Act 2010, specifically in relation to sensitive aspects such as extra-jurisdictional exposure and self-reporting.

We also act for individuals caught up in major criminal investigations and prosecutions.

By way of example, our experts have recently acted:

  • For multiple individuals in connection with FCA, US DoJ/CFTC investigations into LIBOR, EURIBOR and F/X manipulation;
  • As Co-counsel with US lawyers in defence of criminal proceedings instigated by the US DoJ against a UK national relating to LIBOR manipulation – trial in October 2018, post trial motions ongoing;
  • For a senior trader in defence of criminal proceedings instigated by the SFO against a German national relating to EURIBOR manipulation;
  • For a listed company in connection with a criminal market abuse investigation;
  • For individuals under investigation and witnesses to investigations by the FCA in connection with criminal market abuse; and
  • For an individual charged for Fraud by false representation (charged dropped).
