Investigations in UAE. Edmonds Marshall McMahon is a unique firm of attorneys (known in the UK as solicitors and barristers) and prosecutes the full range of offences under the criminal law. The three founding partners have a combined total of 70 years’ experience in criminal justice and the firm offers a novel service to victims of crime – that is, of course, the ability to bring a private prosecution.
Alongside our attorneys, we have a dedicated investigations team comprising former Serious Fraud Office investigators and detectives. We work closely with our firm’s investigators to gather the best evidence to take cases forward. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to prosecutions and pride ourselves on our imaginative and strategic approach to cases, which yields exceptional results for our clients in the UAE.
Our investigators are experts in investigating top tier bribery and corruption offences. Their skills and experience range from assisting companies in preliminary internal investigations to large-scale, global investigations on behalf of foreign governments. We investigate a wide variety of fraudulent and criminal behaviour in the UAE and elsewhere, including insider trading and financial services fraud. Our investigators are experienced in the unique challenges that result from companies and individuals being targeted by cybercrime.
We are proud to provide a complete evidence gathering service, from investigation to confiscations. We are experts in evidence gathering, e-review and e-disclosure for criminal proceedings. We have also worked extensively with regulatory bodies and know what concerns the regulator and prosecuting agencies will have.
Our clients in the UAE benefit from our global reach and access to specialists, including investigators and forensic accountants, in various jurisdictions. We understand that cases often require a tailored international strategy and our knowledge of local jurisdictions, including the UAE, allows us to take fast effective action on behalf of our clients. We can work closely with your own firm’s investigators or provide investigative assistance (overt or covert) through experienced and highly skilled external private investigators.
If you would like to discuss a potential investigation, such as a corporate fraud investigation, we can advise you quickly, by telephone or email, as to whether we will be able to assist. If we are unable to assist, we will advise on who you should speak to for the result you are seeking.
