Financial Crime

In an increasingly interconnected world, international organizations, both governmental and non-governmental, together with prosecutors, regulators, shareholders, journalists and civil society groups, seek to hold corporations and their senior executives accountable for allegedly unlawful and unethical conduct. Amid a developing new business environment, the issues facing these corporations and executives are often cross-jurisdictional or involve concurrent questions of civil, criminal and regulatory law. Concerns about unethical or unlawful conduct typically arise in relation to criminal laws around fraud, embezzlement, bribery (including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act), market manipulation, sanctions, tax evasion and money laundering.
