Fraud and Financial Crime

We have a highly regarded team in Singapore working on fraud and financial crime related matters for a wide range of clients including large corporations, financial institutions and senior management and staff. Our specialists from across different practice areas work together as one team to advise in relation to insider dealing, securities fraud, market misconduct, business conduct of corporations, duties of directors and officers of both listed and unlisted companies, complex property offences, corporate and securities breaches and fraud and corruption. We also advise on breaches of disclosure requirements and regulatory offences under the Companies Act, Securities and Futures Act, Listing Manual, Code of Corporate Governance, Singapore Code on Take-overs and Mergers and other regulations.

We help our clients on various regulatory and compliance aspects as a preventive measure. In addition, we have also advised businesses against management/employee fraud and fraud by third parties including advice on corporate governance issues. On the regulatory front, we advised Marina Bay Sands, the first integrated resort in Singapore, on the Casino Control Act and have dealt regularly with the Casino Regulatory Authority. Our work also includes advice on the Energy Markets Act and dealing with the Energy Markets Authority.

If our clients have suffered as a result of criminal acts, we can assist them with formulating complaints to the relevant authorities, and where necessary and appropriate, we can initiate private prosecutions and civil claims.

In the unfortunate event that our clients are investigated by the relevant authorities or charged with offences, we will ensure that a team of lawyers, who have extensive experience in dealing with authorities, are immediately assigned to the case to ensure that they receive prompt and proper representation.
