We advise many of the biggest and most ambitious organisations across all major regions of the globe. Our clients trust us with their most important transactions, disputes and projects because of our ability to cut through complexity and mitigate risk.

Herbert Smith Freehills has the largest group of white-collar crime, compliance, investigations and regulatory specialists in Asia Pacific. We specialise in advising global and regional corporate clients and individuals on high-profile, complex criminal and regulatory enforcement matters, internal investigations, and related civil litigation. Our team also has experience in handling compliance and advisory issues, including those associated with anti-corruption laws, sanctions, anti-money laundering, competition and other regulatory regimes.

Our team members have lived and worked in the region for many years. They have the language capabilities coupled with an appreciation of the local cultures and complexities of doing business in Asia. We understand the technical legal requirements in each of these jurisdictions as well as the practical concerns facing businesses operating in these environments. This experience is particularly significant in fraud and corruption investigations which are generally cross-border, and require a detailed knowledge not just of differing legal systems and regulatory regimes, but also their treatment of various issues including data and privacy protection, state secrets, employee rights and privilege.
