This content is provided by Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP & Affiliates.
The Government Enforcement and White Collar Crime Group at Skadden is an internationally recognized leader in the representation of corporations, boards of directors, management and other individuals in connection with government investigations, enforcement actions, internal investigations, and white collar criminal prosecutions.
Our practice group comprises lawyers in key financial centres around the world, including for our European practice, in London, Paris, Frankfurt, Brussels and Moscow. When needed, we are also able to draw upon the considerable experience of our prestigious U.S. practice group, which operates globally and includes attorneys who formerly served as United States Attorneys and Assistant United States Attorneys, SEC officials, and other prosecutors and regulators, as well as a former federal judge, CFTC enforcement director and state securities commissioner.
Our practice is broad based and includes the defence of corporations, directors, officers and employees against allegations in various business contexts and at every stage of the enforcement process. For example, we commonly appear before the Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA"), the Serious Fraud Office ("SFO") and the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation ("OFSI") in the U.K..
