Clients around the world have long turned to Ropes & Gray to be their trusted partner in all manner of investigations and enforcement actions.

Our team of over 100 compliance, investigations and enforcement specialists, based across our network of offices in London, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo, Seoul and six US cities, work with clients around the world, across industry sectors, as a trusted partner in all manner of investigations and enforcement. The team includes lawyers with deep experience of prosecuting agencies, prosecuting as well as defending. Fifteen lawyers served as federal prosecutors at US Attorney’s Offices and the US Department of Justice, or as enforcement lawyers at the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

We understand the complexities and challenges presented by the cross-border regulatory and enforcement landscape in which clients operate, and by working with prosecuting agencies and regulators simultaneously, often in multiple jurisdictions. We work closely with our sector experts, so we bring market-leading expertise in private equity, financial services, pharmaceuticals, life sciences, technology and manufacturing to the core team.

Our team has seen tremendous growth in the past 10 years, with significant and high-profile hires and promotions in key jurisdictions in recent months.

Our lawyers are not just leaders in the delivery of quality legal advice but also are also at the forefront of thought leadership and translating emerging trends in investigations in to tangible learning points for clients.

A number of our international partners have been singled out by GIR as thought leaders and industry experts, including Amanda Raad, Judith Seddon, Mimi Yang, and Colleen Conry. Our team contributed substantially to GIR’s best-selling publication The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations 2018, with Judith Seddon and Ama Adams as co-editors and co-authors of the introduction.
