Corporate Crime

With one of the largest specialist corporate crime teams in the UK, BCL has been instructed in most of the significant investigations conducted by the SFO, HMRC, the FCA and the CMA. As well as responding to investigations on behalf of individuals and organisations, our significant experience in dealing with investigating authorities means we are often engaged by corporations to conduct internal investigations into suspected corporate crime. Our work is increasingly international, reflecting the globalisation of the investigation and prosecution of corporate crime, and we are frequently instructed to project manage multi-jurisdictional criminal and ancillary civil litigation in liaison with law firms in overseas jurisdictions. The international nature of our work means that we also have considerable experience in extradition, international mutual legal assistance and challenges to Interpol.
