Practical regulatory & investigative advice in an unpredictable world
We offer clients a range of technical and practical regulatory advice both locally and regionally, wherever they are based
Our regulatory team is made up of experienced contentious and non-contentious professionals, including former regulators, technical advisors and seconded compliance officers. They provide multidisciplinary advice across all business areas and advise clients on regulatory and compliance issues.
This includes defending all aspects of enforcement proceedings and updating and training clients on legislative developments.
We work alongside in-house compliance teams and have particular experience advising on financial crime, including fraud, bribery, money laundering, cartel activity and breach of sanctions; and have represented defendants in some of the largest fraud claims of recent years.
Our active and informed approach ensures our clients can operate effectively, whilst protecting their business interests.
Our global Safety, Security, Health and Environment (SSHE) team offers cross-border experience across all aspects of SSHE laws including incident response, interview and Court room representation and compliance systems.
We provide clients with deep technical capability combined with innovative thinking and a practical approach ensuring high quality and robust advice, support and representation. Our team is led by pre-eminent practitioners and is supported by a global network able to provide an integrated solution to your multi-jurisdictional SSHE requirements.
We have a particular specialism dealing with emergency response and crisis management in relation to incidents across all industry sectors including energy, transportation, infrastructure and marine. We also provide 24/7 Incident Response Management to ensure you are always able to reach a specialist lawyer meaning your risks and potential liabilities are effectively managed from the outset. This protects your organisation and the individuals within it.
We recognise that preventing or reducing the likelihood of incidents is a priority and we partner with our clients to understand your risk profile, consider response strategies and prepare for the unexpected. We conduct safety culture maturity assessments, benchmarking and auditing of SSHE systems against legal requirements and provide critical risk analysis and tailored training and coaching programmes to organisations wanting to drive safer outcomes in their business. For directors and officers, the team can also provide training and coaching on personal legal duties and due diligence obligations as well as strategies to manage them.
