A highly experienced team with a proven track record of advising on high profile cases.
We act for businesses and individuals, both as claimants and defendants, and we provide major companies with anti-corruption advice.
Olswang's fraud practice compliments our general litigation and insolvency practices and we are able to call upon specialist practitioners from these teams and from across the firm to create bespoke teams for fraud-related matters.
Where necessary, we also coordinate teams of external consultants, including asset tracers, process servers, forensic IT experts, PR agencies and foreign lawyers.
Fraud claims are complex and challenging, and particularly stressful for clients.
Our high quality, straight-talking team who deliver clear, innovative and solution-focused advice make us an excellent choice for fraud instructions.
Investigations We have considerable experience in undertaking internal and regulatory investigations, typically addressing commercially sensitive and business critical issues in very short time frames.Our experience in the collection and forensic analysis of communications and data, and in the interview of internal personnel and third parties, enables us to deliver an objective, accurate and comprehensive account of an organisation's position with respect to identified issues and risks.The need for such an investigation can arise for various reasons, including internal risk management, external regulatory compliance, enquiries raised by governmental authorities, contractual or employment issues, and investigations by regulators.Regulatory compliance is an ever-increasing feature of many of our clients' businesses and our lawyers are well versed in the practice of regulators such as HMRC, FSA and Ofcom.We have been instructed to carry out internal investigations by the Boards of some of the UK's largest corporations, and we appreciate the need, in a crisis, for a safe pair of hands to investigate and report upon business critical issues, taking into account both legal and commercial sensitivities.International tech, media and telecoms (TMT) law firm Olswang is pleased to announce that 17 of its partners from Brussels, London, Madrid and Singapore have been listed in the Who’s Who Legal guide 2015/16, representing practice areas and sectors such as dispute resolution, competition, IP, life sciences, real estate and TMT.
