Extensive understanding of corporate regulatory authorities
We understand that corporate crime sanctions for non-compliance are becoming stricter, and our team has developed an extensive understanding of corporate regulatory authorities and their policy objectives in order for us to best serve our clients in defending against investigations. ASIC work to ensure that there is a quality of information available to the public, shareholders and members or officers of Australian companies, assisting external administrators to address ongoing misconduct by company officers and discouraging the misuse of ASIC’s public database. They also prevent disqualified directors from managing companies.
We work with clients by providing step-by-step guidance on dealing with prosecutions from ASIC, but also the ACCC and the ATO. We provide you with instructions on dealing with investigators, a list of essential tasks, as well as how staff should work and behave during what is inevitably a high-stress scenario.
