Overview

Skadden’s global resources and experience enable the firm to anticipate and respond to the many demands created by multijurisdictional investigations and proceedings routinely pursued by investigative agencies in the U.S. and around the world.

Our various offices and depth of knowledge across the firm’s practices enable us to conduct fact-finding and analysis in connection with some of the most complex cross-border investigations in virtually every country in which our clients conduct business.

We have attorneys in key financial centers in the Asia-Pacific, the Americas and Europe — many of whom are former prosecutors and/or regulators — who handle cross-border investigations across a broad range of topics. We have helped our clients with investigations involving, among other subjects, corruption/bribery, antitrust/cartels, money laundering, economic sanctions, customs and export controls, insider trading, market abuse and other financial institution regulatory issues, accounting, public company disclosures, securities and derivatives enforcement, and tax. When necessary, we are able to call upon a network of local counsel with whom we have long-established relationships.

The firm also has significant experience conducting internal investigations and compliance-related due diligence, as well as designing, implementing and reviewing compliance programs for multinational companies.
