I also advise on compliance issues and enquiries by regulatory authorities and professional institutions in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and the European Union in areas including customs and excise, money laundering, law enforcement and extradition.
I have expertise in applying for injunctions to protect and freeze assets. I also advise with regard to Judicial Review of investigating authorities decisions.
I have acted for professional individuals, firms and companies in responding to criminal or fraudulent activity from their own employees or from outside attack whether within the UK or internationally.
