Corporate Crime & Investigations

Today’s regulatory frameworks often blur the line separating criminal, civil and administrative wrongdoings, resulting in heightened risks when doing business to be subject to investigations.

We represent corporations, directors, management and other individuals in connection with a broad range of government investigations, enforcement actions, and internal investigations.

We represent our clients when they have become victims of criminal behaviour by their own employees or by third parties, and help them assert their rights within and beside the criminal investigations and proceedings. We also represent our clients when they need to defend themselves against allegations of wrongdoing in various business contexts and at every stage of the criminal process, in investigations, before prosecutors or courts.

Walder Wyss is well-positioned to help clients navigate the legal landscape when business conduct results in concurrent criminal, civil and/or administrative proceedings that require a strategically coordinated response. We are aware that defending our clients’ interests not only requires a sound knowledge of the criminal law but also a thorough understanding of the commercial background. We can draw on the specialist expertise of our banking, tax, competition, commercial and employment lawyers to provide comprehensive advice and strategy in pursuing actions or defending against allegations.
