Bribery and cyber crime

Published on

Fraud on individuals is on the rise and high net-worth individuals (HNWIs), their families and associated businesses are key targets. With reports indicating wealthy or high profile clients are 35% more likely to be victims of fraud they need to be more vigilant than ever.

We regularly help clients with strategies which prevent them becoming victims of fraud, cyber-attacks and bribery offences. We also act quickly and discreetly for clients that have become victims, or are the subject of investigations surrounding fraud, cyber-attacks and bribery.

What do we do:

  • advise on fraud, cyber-attack and bribery prevention strategies
  • work with cyber security specialists when cyber-attacks occur
  • recover monies and assets wrongly taken, including by obtaining freezing orders
  • identify individuals behind frauds and cyber-attacks using, for example, strategies to obtain disclosure from third parties such as banks, ISPs and social media platforms

Our experience includes:

  • acting for a family business in implementing a worldwide strategy to recover stolen monies from an agent
  • defending a HNWI alleged to have committed a global fraud
  • acting for recipients of state agency investigations such as the DOJ/SFO
  • acting on push/pull payment fraud
  • advising a well-known retailer who suffered a brute force cyber-attack on its network disclosing customer credit card information which resulted in fraudulent transactions
