Can you help with an international criminal investigation?

Cross border cooperation between law enforcement agencies and other regulatory bodies means that doing business in other countries can lead to unexpected complications including breaches of local and international law.

This relatively new phenomenon is largely driven by the growth of international markets and the attendant growth of money laundering, which often involves organised crime, not to mention funding for international terrorist organisations.

Against this backdrop, it’s easy to see how companies and individuals trading across frontiers might unknowingly become involved with clients, customers or even suppliers who have connections to illegal activities and the proceeds of crime.

If you’re being investigated with regard to international or multinational crimes, call us on 0161 830 9632 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or contact us and we’ll call you.
