Fraud & White Collar Crime


We were the first firm in Ireland to develop a dedicated and specialist Fraud and White Collar Crime team and have been recognised as having the leading practice group in the State.

We advise on managing relationships with regulators, corporate fraud & asset tracing, fraud investigations and the defence of criminal prosecutions.

Our clients are usually corporates (including some of the largest Irish companies and multinationals), financial institutions and public bodies. We also represent boards, senior management and employees caught up in regulatory investigations.

We have extensive experience in dealing with regulators both in Ireland and abroad. In Ireland, we deal with all regulators including the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement (ODCE), the Data Protection Commissioner (DPC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Garda Bureau of Fraud Investigations (GBFI), the Central Bank, the Competition Authority, the Revenue Commissioners and the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB).

We regularly work with international law firms and other advisors in dealing with claims from regulators such as the Financial Services Authority in the UK, and in the US, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Food & Drugs Administration (FDA) and the Department of Justice. We also have experience of dealing with various other regulatory authorities in a range of EU jurisdictions, Australia and Russia.

At all times, we strive to protect our clients from the reputational consequences that can flow from a criminal investigation. We advise on a broad range of areas including:

  • regulatory investigations
  • advice on the civil, criminal and regulatory implications of breaching various laws
  • trans jurisdictional criminal investigations
  • fraud
  • unannounced visits/Dawn Raids by Regulators
  • corporate reputation
  • defending prosecutions in the District and Circuit and Criminal Courts
  • making reports to regulatory agencies
  • money laundering
  • asset tracing
  • advising on extradition/potential extradition requests
  • financial disputes involving fraud
