White Collar Crime & Fraud Investigations

Our strong foundations in technology and our ability to tap into a network of external experts allow us to efficiently investigate and analyse electronic evidence and to put in place an efficient mechanism to prevent the re-occurrence of a crime. We represent our clients in criminal and civil proceedings and provide advice to detect and mitigate risks and damage to reputation.

The rapid advance of technology and the modernization of the Indian economy has led to a steep rise in white collar crimes. DSK Legal’s white collar practice has kept pace with the evolving legal and regulatory regime in India and abroad. The strength of our white collar practice is bolstered by the skills of our related teams, in particular, our banking and finance, corporate, dispute resolution and tax teams.

As foreign investments come into the country, Indian companies tied to corporations in the U.S and the U.K are increasingly exposed to investigations under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, 1977 and UK Bribery Act, 2010. Additionally, as anti-corruption laws have become more stringent in India, it has become incumbent on the directors of companies to put in place a mechanism to prevent fraud and corruption. Our team ensures that our clients are compliant with Indian and foreign law at every step of a transaction, while also putting in place a safety net in a post-transaction scenario. Our solutions cover fraud or breach of security incidents, including incidents concerning kickbacks, bribery and intellectual property theft.
