Corporate Crime & Investigations

People involved in the operation of companies are often the subject of scrutiny by Australian regulators when the affairs or the conduct of the corporate entity or its officers come under notice for a variety of reasons.

Individual company directors and officers can be the subject of an investigation by Australian regulatory authorities, found guilty of a crime and ordered to pay compensation.

Australian regulators like the ACCC, ASIC and the ATO have broad investigative powers and extensive compliance teams which seek to enforce the laws policed by these agencies.

If you or your company are issued with any notice by any of these regulators you should seek urgent legal advice and assistance.

If you or your company are already facing corporate and tax criminal charges, you need a team of experienced lawyers with a detailed understanding of commercial transactions, corporate law, tax and criminal law.
