Internal Investigation & Crossborder Proceedings

 

We conduct independent investigations on behalf of corporate boards and supervisory authorities to assess civil or criminal liability and to determine their regulatory impact on our clients and advise our clients on their implications.

 

We assess the potential liability of directors and officers, alleged violations of domestic and foreign supervisory regulations, as well as alleged violations of domestic and foreign anti-corruption laws (such as the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FCPA). We are the only Swiss law firm listed by Chambers & Partners as one of the leading firms Europe-wide for corporate investigations.

 

Our team specializing in crossborder proceedings focuses on international legal assistance proceedings in both civil and criminal matters. We also represent clients in international administrative assistance proceedings initiated by financial markets supervisors and tax authorities.

 

As the only Swiss law firm, we are ranked in the category "Corporate Investigations - Europe-wide" by Chambers and Partners. The Global Investigations Review (GIR) features Bär & Karrer in the GIR 100, an independent guide to the world's best firms for international investigations.
