We advise on all aspects of complex corporate crime and offences in Ireland.
Our specialist white collar crime group have top tier expertise advising clients through public and private inquiries and investigations by regulators and enforcement authorities, in Ireland and internationally.
Businesses and organisations face increasing scrutiny as compliance responsibilities and obligations are enhanced through statute and regulatory authorities are given wider supervisory mandates and enforcement powers. Organisational fraud can have long-standing reputational implications. Our team works closely with clients to navigate them through complex criminal and regulatory investigations and to manage the reputational consequences that often result from such investigations.
We also advise on compliance programmes and preventative measures to reduce the risk of civil and criminal sanctions.
In such sensitive and complex matters, clients need lawyers who have significant experience dealing with law enforcement agencies and regulators. Within Ireland, we have advised clients under investigation by the Central Bank, the Criminal Assets Bureau, the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement, the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission and the European Commission.
Areas we advise in include:
- Administrative sanctions investigations
- Antitrust and competition (including in respect of so-called “dawn raids”)
- Criminal prosecutions
- Crisis management
- Defence litigation
- Due diligence
- Fitness and probity
- Internal investigations
- Money laundering
- Regulatory and compliance issues
- Regulatory and criminal investigations and public inquiries
- Reputation management
Really commercial, agile and pragmatic.
