At Bird & Bird, we have extensive experience in conducting complex civil investigations. We have a long-established practice of advising multi-national corporations, professionals and individuals from various industry sectors. 

With lawyers across multiple jurisdictions, the group has broad capabilities, with extensive experience advising on and conducting investigations relating to complex fraud cases, asset-tracing, employment, trade secret infringements and other civil related investigatory claims. 

Fraud disputes are a major part of our disputes management practice, and over the years we have acted for many leading international companies in complex disputes across all industry sectors. The global trend to crack down on bribery and corruption, false accounting, fraud, market abuse and other illegal activities has led to an increase in enforcement activity. We specialise in assisting our clients to retrieve hidden assets in highly complex structures and have developed an in-depth understanding of current tactics, strategies and best practice which will facilitate successful recovery actions. Supporting this, we are also experienced in advising clients about making a voluntary disclosure to regulatory bodies and the related consequences and risks. 

Members of our fraud, corporate crime and asset tracing group are invited regularly to speak at international conferences on asset tracing.
