We live in a world that is interconnected in every aspect. The corporate world in particular has witnessed globalisation in a manner that would have been impossible many decades ago. This is due in no small part to the enabling power of technology as a result of which trading between companies all over the world can now be conducted at the push of a button on a computer. While this economic and corporate interconnectedness has brought about unimaginable opportunities and benefits to businesses and communities as a whole, it has also made it much easier for international corporate and financial fraud to be committed. Coupled with the recent global economic recession that rocked the financial markets across the world, companies have become more susceptible to fraud, corruption and financial crime in recent times than before.
Our experts have confirmed a significant rise in the number of international corporate fraud and financial crime cases over the last few years. Investigations have been launched both at home and abroad into companies and individuals suspected to have been involved in international corporate and financial crime for a variety of reasons. This is perhaps one of the most stressful and unsettling period of anyone’s life and the expert advice and assistance of a seasoned international criminal lawyer will prove most beneficial. At London’s most prominent criminal defence law networks, we know that becoming a subject of investigation in an alleged international crime does not only affect the operations of the company under investigation but also the personal and family lives of the individuals involved.
