Our regional Financial Crime team is a practice leader in the provision of advisory and litigation services in complex financial crime and related matters, which often involve dealing with regulatory bodies, cross-border issues and multiple jurisdictions.
We represent and advise a wide range of clients, including financial institutions, government-owned entities, multi-national corporations and high profile individuals. In addition to direct instructions from clients, our Financial Crime team is often approached by international law firms, who recognise that we have the capability and experience to offer their clients the best local law advice and assistance in the region. We also work closely with a number of the top auditing and forensic accounting service providers to give our clients practical and legal solutions in the most time-and-cost-effective manner.
Our team consists of lawyers from various civil law and common law jurisdictions and includes both native Arabic and English speakers with international and regional expertise. We are therefore able to provide our clients with the comprehensive service that they need, from initial legal and strategic advice, to drafting in Arabic or English, to advocacy in the local courts.
