Corporate Investigations — Our Services
Corporate Internal Investigations
At PCB Byrne, we are experienced supporting global clients who are facing criminal or regulatory investigations, putting in place the proactive strategies to mitigate risk.

We regularly conduct internal investigations, advising clients on the necessary steps to address any potential risks within the business. Over the years, members of the team have advised on a range of criminal resolutions – from civil recovery orders to DPAs.

With the regulatory understanding and strategic skills to develop the facts in sensitive environments, we’re able to cover diverse subjects and address issues of privilege and confidentiality. Our investigations practice is well supported by our wider litigation team that has extensive experience in defending clients in complex, high-risk and multi-jurisdictional actions.

Our notable experience
  • Advised and acted for a financial institution in a high-profile and sensitive money laundering investigation involving multiple regulators and jurisdictions; successful in securing a favourable outcome with no regulatory action initiated and reduced penalty.
  • Advised a global natural resources company on investigations initiated with regards to conduct of its offshore subsidiary.
  • Advised a global alcohol beverages company on multiple internal investigations concerning allegations of payment of bribes and vendor kickbacks.
