Chambers regularly advises corporate clients on criminal liability, internal procedures and regulatory obligations. The need for advice often arises in the context of Serious Fraud Office investigations, public inquiries, criminal prosecutions or internal investigations. Chambers' unrivalled experience in complex economic fraud, bribery, money laundering, and tax and investment fraud leaves us uniquely positioned to provide companies faced with criminal or other investigation with realistic advice and ongoing support for the challenges they face.
Several members of Chambers are currently instructed on behalf of a major multinational company to undertake an internal review of their conduct. We have been instructed on behalf of BAE Systems PLC, major banks and FTSE 100 companies. We regularly work alongside magic circle law firms and major accountancy firms in sensitive corporate investigations. Our clients also include government departments and agencies.
Chambers is able to provide both individuals and teams of barristers at all levels of experience, to provide support, advice or conduct reviews into the conduct of companies, or individuals within a company. We provide a comprehensive, cost-effective and discreet service addressing all aspects of a legal problem.
Instructions are accepted either through solicitors, or on a direct access basis.
