Investigations & White Collar

Our investigations and white-collar practice is widely experienced in the criminal defence and prosecution, with a particular expertise in white-collar crime (including crimes against the market, fraud, corruption, embezzlement, tax offences, among others). Equally, the team has successful vast track-record in the context of misdemeanour proceedings initiated by sector-specific regulatory bodies (CMVM, CNPD, ASF, ERSE, ANACOM, among others), or supervisory entities such as the national antitrust authorities (‘Autoridade da Concorrência’).

From a pre-emptive standpoint, our investigations and white-collar team is actively engaged with our clients in the design, implementation and monitoring of compliance programmes that provide for the tools and procedures required to comply with the applicable legal and regulatory rules and regulations, thus mitigating risks and avoid liabilities. This experienced and distinctive strategic and agile legal advice is acutely significant, more so in emerging markets where most of the losses suffered by multinationals result from bribery, corruption, fraud, lack of regulatory compliance and reputational damage.

We work as a team. Our Investigations & White-Collar lawyers work closely with other lawyers specialising in banking & finance, insurance, tax, regulatory, administrative and public law, construction and competition, to respond to the most challenging internal investigations and disputes.
