Fasken defends clients and conducts investigations in high profile, multijurisdictional white-collar matters.
Where a company, organization or individuals face white collar crime issues, the stakes are high. An outstanding legal team with strong experience, significant resources and broad knowledge is essential.
We respond to client emergencies on short notice, advising on crisis management and dealing with all manners of criminal and regulatory matters affecting business, institutions, government and its executives or officials.
White collar investigations involve a wide range of substantive legal issues. Allegations of foreign or domestic corrupt practices, fraud, cybercrime, tax evasion, breaches of international sanctions, and securities or public safety violations rarely stand alone; the complexity calls for multidisciplinary legal teams that can mobilize quickly and bring in related professionals such as forensic experts and private investigators wherever and whenever necessary.
Regulatory and civil proceedings often run parallel to criminal investigations. We represent clients facing all three processes, coordinating strategies to create a unified plan of action, assessment of exposure and to minimize costs and risk.
Where a client has itself suffered loss as a result of wrongdoing, we will investigate and pursue persons and assets, wherever they may be located in the world.
Our white collar crime and investigations group is active in all the offices and regions where we are located. Outside of these jurisdictions, we work with a network of pre-eminent lawyers and experts to ensure global reach.
