Compliance and Fraud Investigation

We support our clients to establish compliance and fraud prevention mechanisms in their subsidiary companies; thereby minimizing business risk in ASEAN expansions.


Globalization come with the risk that breaching regulatory compliance obligations in one jurisdiction can have legal consequences in multiple countries. Fraudulent business practice by a subsidiary in one country can adversely affect the operation of the whole company. Therefore, making sure subsidiaries have the requisite infrastructure is crucial for expanding operations into the ASEAN region. Especially relevant today in light of the corruption and fraud that is notorious across the region. Our offices in the ASEAN region combine to provide our clients with unified legal advice and comprehensive fraud investigations.
