Due to UK legislations that make it an offence to fail to prevent certain crimes (especially corruption and tax offences), it is often in the best interests for companies and individuals to internally investigate any suspected wrongdoing. In many cases, self-reporting or co-operating with the authorities results in more favourable treatment, such as deferred prosecution agreements.
Our experienced solicitors can help advise and conduct internal investigations to help you protect the interests and reputation of the business. We can also liaise with the relevant authorities to minimise the impact on the company and negotiate for more desirable terms.
We will advise you on how best to conduct the investigation to manage and minimise risk to your business and your reputation, whatever the scope and scale.
