investigations

We provide representation on criminal law matters, from traffic offences to serious criminal allegations.  We advise clients from the earliest stages of a case – before charges have been brought – through to court proceedings.

Ensuring compliance with the increasingly complex and pervasive nature of regulation in HK requires expert advice and support.  Our team of experienced lawyers regularly represent individuals, organisations and corporates, providing advice on regulatory compliance, investigations (including internal investigations) and enforcement.  We help clients steer a course through the legal, regulatory and reputational challenges such situations present. 

Assault and Serious Crimes

We advise on various aspects of criminal law for both HK and international clients.  No situation is ever the same.  Whether the matters are high profile or conducted behind closed doors, we apply our experience and judgment to navigate difficult issues involving the matter.  We provide strategic and pragmatic advice and can bring in colleagues from other practice areas as necessary to ensure employment, regulatory and reputation management issues are considered and appropriate covered.

Bribery & Corruption

We have a strong track record of defending and advising both individuals and corporations in bribery and corruption matters.  Our experience encompasses internal investigations within an organization, anti-bribery and corruption compliance, through to investigations and prosecutions by the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC).  Working together with a network of accounting and investigation firms, our team can conduct forensic investigations on behalf of clients.  We have experience in safeguarding privilege, avoiding pitfalls when gathering evidence, and deal with regulatory authorities.  Working alongside with other members of the firm, we will guide our clients through interlinking civl, criminal, regulatory and disciplinary issues that often arise in suspected bribery cases.

Cyber Crime

Our team has extensive experience in defending those accused of cyber crime, and those affected by it.  Our approach is multi-disciplinary and involves working with you to identify specific business and compliance risks, corporate governance responsibilities, litigation risks, disclosure and notification obligations.  From proactive resilience building and strategy development, reactive damage control, to non-contentious transactional work, we can help your business prevent, manage and address cyber risks. 

We work closely with third party experts, such as forensic IT specialists, accountants, and public relations consultants, to serve your needs.
