Navigating your organisation through global and domestic regulatory and corporate investigations.

Search our People

We understand you face an ever-evolving regulatory and social landscape, where businesses are under more scrutiny than ever, from regulators, shareholders, employees, customers and the communities in which we live.

Our global team of experts has extensive experience in conducting and responding to investigations about all forms of corporate and employee misconduct in that environment whether investigations are initiated by the business, or by regulators or law enforcement agencies.

Our extensive experience also allows us to assist you to minimise commercial, legal and reputational risks relating to investigations and their subject matter.

Depth of experience

Our team of experts frequently deals with regulators and enforcement agencies across the globe on a wide range of complex investigations and enforcement activity. That experience enables us to help you navigate regulatory investigation and to mitigate and manage risks and outcomes.


Where an investigation crosses borders, we provide a coordinated, global response, with a team of multi-lingual expert investigators across various jurisdictions, who are also expert in the subject matter of concern.

Looking beyond the investigation

We know that an investigation is just one part of a broader picture. Before, during and after any investigation, our team provides incisive advice considering all relevant legal, reputational, commercial and disciplinary issues and consequences.

Rapid response

We understand that the need to investigate, or to respond to an investigation, can arise at unexpected and often inconvenient times. We regularly assemble experienced teams at short notice to respond to your urgent needs, and can provide ongoing support where you need assistance in triaging and managing investigations at volume.

Remediation and improving compliance

Together with our Risk Advisory team, we will work closely with you to execute remediation efforts where an investigation reveals that's required; and to identify trends that may require action or offer opportunities to improve internal systems and controls.
