Overview

Kirkland’s London team forms part of the broader Government, Regulatory and Internal Investigations group which is recognized as one of the world’s premier white collar crime teams. The team works across the full spectrum of corporate crime work and is able to deploy experts in multiple fields which is unusual in the market. The team has significant, if not unparalleled, experience in government agencies and prosecutions and also has London-based, US-law expertise in investigations, AML, sanctions and CFIUS. The work of the London team in the area of corporate crime divides into two core areas: (i) company investigations (including acting for senior individuals) and dealing with government agencies on behalf of clients; and (ii) advice on corporate crime matters (such as anti-money laundering, anti-corruption, financial sanctions, data breaches, and fraud) to companies, particularly large private equity firms and their portfolio companies. This work focuses on corporate crime prevention as well as general counselling and advisory work.
