Internal Investigations in Asia

Debevoise’s Asian Team is Part of One of the World’s Leading Internal Investigations Practices

Debevoise’s team in Asia includes lawyers with deep experience in advising companies on all aspects of their most sensitive internal investigations. Mark Johnson is one of the regions’ foremost lawyers in this area, with more than 25 years’ experience in Asia. He is ranked by both Chambers and The Legal 500 as a top-tier advisor for dispute resolution in China and Hong Kong respectively. Shanghai-based counsel Philip Rohlik has over a decade’s worth of experience in advising on internal investigations.

The Asia-based team includes U.S. and locally qualified lawyers working as part of one of the world’s foremost investigations practices. They provide on-the-ground, full-time advice and cultural awareness, and have worked with companies in a wide variety of sectors, using knowledge of the specific demands and priorities of individual sectors to shape their advice. These include sectors such as industrials, manufacturing, consumer products, financial services, insurance, pharmaceutical/health care, engineering and entertainment.

The team has significantly wide geographical experience as well, having advised on investigations involving China, India, Korea, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Bangladesh.

The breadth of experience in the practice equips it to handle the full range of investigations, building the right teams and resources to fit any given situation. This can range from Asian aspects of highly public international investigations for the world’s largest corporations, to discrete, non-public internal investigations in Asia.
