White Collar & Enforcement

Our dedicated White Collar & Enforcement Practice specialises in corruption, white collar crime, financial market and securities offences, as well as technology crimes. We also assist individual and corporate clients who are faced with allegations of bribery or fraudulent transactions. In addition to our defence work, we advise and conduct 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.

With a sophisticated team trained to run legal audits to trace the flow of transactions and to verify the legitimacy of these transactions, we have the expertise to handle complex financial crime that involve devices such as round-tripping and the use of multiple accounts. A large part of our practice includes assisting clients in investigating and dealing with errant employees suspected of criminal misconduct. We also work together with law enforcement agencies in uncovering and reporting the full extent of such criminal breaches by our clients/the employees.

When crisis occurs, we are able to augment our criminal defence expertise with our civil litigation expertise to obtain freezing 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.
