Non-violent crimes, including public corruption, mortgage or healthcare fraud, money laundering, come under 'white-collar crimes'. While this area of crime was previously neglected, the Gardai is inspecting firms more thoroughly in an attempt to reduce white-collar crime.
If you're a corporate employee or your firm is under scrutiny for allegations related to white-collar crime, it is important to hire white-collar crime solicitors who can guide you through the process and protect your assets.
How can legal allegations affect your company?
You cannot be charged a legal fine until you are convicted. However, the allegations can still change your company's operations. A criminal investigation is enough to harm you and your company's reputation. This can lead to long-term effects on your business function, profits, and even company expansion in the future.
What can white-collar crime solicitors do?
White-collar crime solicitors guide you through the legal troubles by providing you with clear, concise advice. Through a transparent and systematic approach, they aim to protect you from false allegations and sanctions. With their help, your company can avoid sustaining major damages caused by on-going investigations.
Most white-collar crime solicitors specialise in handling the following white-collar crimes:
- Money laundering, fraud, bribery and corruption
- Regulatory investigations
- Fraudulent trading
- Extradition Requests
- Civil, Criminal and Regulatory law violations
- False accounting cases
How can solicitors help you?
White-collar crime solicitors excel at navigating the Civil, Criminal, and Regulatory law requirements that usually hinder business and can offer you a service package that is bound to secure your future.
Here are three ways white-collar crime solicitors help you:
Investigations and Inquiries: Several solicitors offer to conduct internal and external investigations on your behalf into bribery, fraud, money laundering, or corruption allegations to help prove your innocence.
Representation: The main job of a solicitor is to represent you cross-country (or internationally) for all investigations and inquiries. As your legal counsel, they're responsible for offering you transparent feedback during negotiations.
Advice: As your representative, they'll be responsible for preparing you for witness examinations and advising you regarding legal matters. It's important to select someone who operates on a 100% honest policy which includes keeping complete transparency with all their clients.
