White Collar & Regulatory Defense in Asia

Debevoise Regularly Handles Significant Asia-Based White Collar and Regulatory Matters

Debevoise litigators have handled white collar and regulatory matters on behalf of clients in China, India, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Thailand.

The firm’s Asia team works alongside its international colleagues in the White Collar and Regulatory Defense Group to handle civil and criminal investigations, litigation and parallel administrative proceedings involving the FCPA, UK Bribery Act, SEC regulations, money laundering statutes, antitrust laws and other laws and regulations.

The team draws on its broad experience to provide strategic advice to clients, to identify and execute on the most effective courses of action. This can mean anything from aggressively litigating in defense of criminal prosecutions to negotiating complex global settlements and facilitating cooperation with government investigations.

Debevoise’s white collar and regulatory defense team in Asia also routinely counsels clients on preventative measures, helping them avoid issues before they arise. This involves implementing effective compliance programs and guarding against the collateral consequences of criminal proceedings, as well as conducting anti-corruption due diligence in connection with mergers and acquisitions.
