THE FIRM Rahman Ravelli’s expanded presence in the City of London and bases in the Midlands and Yorkshire, its network of worldwide legal experts, global caseload and record of success mark it out as a national and international leader in its field.

Its depth of experience and acknowledged expertise in serious and corporate fraud, white-collar crime, bribery and corruption, regulatory matters, complex crime, market abuse, asset recovery and commercial litigation — in particular, civil fraud — have ensured the highest rankings in legal guides, a string of awards and legal successes and a reputation second to none.

It is a reputation for robust, first-class, effective legal representation tailored specifically to each client. This reputation continues to grow due to the firm’s track record of success, its ability to hire the best lawyers and its strong, proactive and innovative approach to resolving issues around the world for clients.

It is adept at responding to attacks on clients’ interests by governments or agencies. As a result, Rahman Ravelli is frequently recommended to others by current or past clients and by other legal professionals, here and abroad.

It is a firm known for managing all aspects of criminal and regulatory defence and for going up against national and international agencies, such as the SFO, the FCA, DOJ, SEC, the City of London Police, Interpol, NCA, HMRC, the FBI and OLAF. Rahman Ravelli regularly receives instructions on the largest, most notable, complex and multinational and multi-agency white-collar crime investigations.

Recent work includes instructions in the UK’s largest and most high-profile global corruption investigations, involvement in some of the UK’s most significant deferred prosecution agreement (DPA) negotiations and cross-border investment fraud cases. It is in increasing demand to help corporates and senior executives investigate and self-report wrongdoing in order to achieve a civil, rather than a criminal, solution to an issue.
Rahman Ravelli is also sought out by corporates and high net worth individuals for its investigative and legal expertise on asset tracing and recovery work that involves a number of countries and multiple jurisdictions.

PRINCIPAL AREAS OF WORK
Rahman Ravelli’s expertise in, and vast experience of, commercial fraud and business crime defence, as well as its success in major tax fraud, international corruption and money laundering investigations ensure that no case is ever too big, complex or geographically diverse. It is widely respected for its work in regulatory investigations, large-scale commercial disputes involving corporate wrongdoing, reputational issues, corporate liability and multi-jurisdictional enforcement.

The firm handles multinational bribery and corruption cases involving billions of dollars, governments, law enforcement agencies and companies of all sizes and from all nations and industries. It advises companies and professionals worldwide and from all areas of business on compliance, corporate risk and internal investigations. Rahman Ravelli’s client list also includes large corporates, high-ranking officials, high-networth individuals and all types of professionals and senior figures being investigated by agencies in the UK or abroad.

Its experience in civil recovery has seen it help shape the law and be the first to take such a case to the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights to protect clients’ assets. Its unrivalled expertise in asset recovery matters has seen it become a logical first choice for clients facing restraint orders and the confiscation and/or freezing of assets.

The firm’s acknowledged global asset tracing and recovery skills are repeatedly used by corporates and high net worth individuals. It also handles cases involving unexplained wealth orders, by which authorities can take assets from those they suspect of wrongdoing.
