Our investigations lawyers help both companies and individuals following the discovery of issues that might have regulatory or civil repercussions. This can involve suspicion of bribery, fraud, cartel activity, sanctions and/or money laundering breaches or market manipulation. We specialise in high profile, complex situations where reputations and livelihoods are often on the line.
We move quickly and focus on solving the problems that disrupt everyday working life. Our approach to investigations is technology-enabled, including specialist AI tools and access to MDR Discover, a team of eDiscovery experts hosted by Mishcon in London. MDR Cyber, part of the Mishcon de Reya Group, is involved alongside the lawyers from day one, meaning that no time is lost, and vital evidence can be secured before wrongdoers can cover their tracks.
