We were involved in one of the leading compliance cases Shah v HSBC [2009] a claim for US$ 330m against HSBC for their wrongful conduct in reporting our client for money laundering.

We recently acted for our client in relation to a £multi-million international bribery investigation by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO). During the course of these proceedings we successfully obtained a Court order obtained through Judicial Review proceedings, ensuring that our client was not at risk of unreasonable conduct at the hands of the investigating agency.
