Fraud and Investigations

Fraud, bribery, and corruption are serious concerns, particularly in developing economies, and are major contributors to losses suffered by local and international companies. The consequences are not just the monetary losses but also the reputational damage that requires considerable effort to recover from.  Our team is equipped with international experience and perspectives that enable us to assist companies in establishing robust anti-bribery & corruption, incident response policies, and investigations.

A sampling of our highlight matters in this area includes:

  • Representing a Japanese renewable energy company in a SIAC arbitration and Singapore litigation against claims for damages, and rightful shareholding in the renewable energy projects against Indian and Vietnamese entities with claims of fraud and forging of documents. 
  • Acting as lead counsel on claims against an investee Vietnam-domiciled waste processing and management company and its officers, executives, and majority shareholder, arising from contractual breaches, breaches of fiduciary duties, and potential fraud.
