Chambers UK 2020 - A Client’s Guide to the UK Legal Profession

Kingsley Napley is the first choice for clients dealing with cases that have an international dimension.  Its extraterritorial white collar practice is sought by clients who want a firm that has over 50 years’ experience.  

Robustly defending requests from foreign jurisdictions is not for the faint-hearted, nor for the inexperienced.  Our lawyers have unparalleled experience and are recognised leaders in the field.  We have extraditionfraud and business crime lawyers that assist clients in defeating Red Notices, managing extradition requests and brokering deals or resisting requests, depending on what is in the best interests of the individual client.

Our experience involves every type of business crime issue, including cross-border criminal and financial regulatory investigations, corruption and fraud, financial sanctions, tax investigations and cartel investigations

Our expertise in related public law matters, including EU challenges, challenges to Interpol Red Notices and extradition proceedings (both here and abroad) enables us to advise individuals and corporates on the most complicated public law cases that arise.  There is often a related regulatory issue that means we work together with our regulatory department to advise on what is the best way of dealing with the matter as a whole, and not just in respect of each step that needs to be taken.  Our value is in seeing the end goal and getting our clients there.

We will assemble a team of experts from across the firm for clients  whose cases require a detailed knowledge of potential criminal and civil liability.

After considering the best course, we can assist with regulatory proceedings, private prosecutions (should they be deemed necessary) and complaints to the police if there has been criminal conduct.  Our aim is to achieve a satisfactory resolution of the case that meets the needs of the clients and is proportionate to the conduct being scrutinised.
