Crime: Litigation, Investigations & Prosecution

Our Crime: Litigation, Investigations & Prosecution ("CLIP") team is a dedicated commercial crime practice that handles defence work specialising in corruption, white collar crime, financial market and securities offences, as well as technology crimes. Another dimension to CLIP is a focused team comprising various expertise trained to run legal audits to trace the flow of transactions and to verify the legitimacy of these transactions. This includes transboundary transactions common in commodities trading houses.

Our team provides a comprehensive spectrum of services which includes advising the employer or statutory bodies in its pursuit of errant employees. In other matters, we assist corporate clients who are faced with allegations of bribery or false transactions. The third dimension includes advisory and prosecution work for professional regulatory bodies and statutory boards.

Our clients are leading businesses trading across multiple jurisdictions as well as prominent individuals from the private sector. When crisis occurs, we are able to augment our criminal defence and investigations expertise with our civil litigation expertise to obtain Freeze Orders and/or Search and Seizure Orders.

Recognised for our cutting-edge expertise, we contributed the Singapore chapter in the inaugural edition of Chambers Global Practice Guides - Anti-Corruption 2018, an international handbook designed to assist businesses by detailing key issues on corruption and financial crime.
