Cross Border Investigations

The international nature of business and finance means that an investigation can involve numerous law enforcement agencies in various countries. Reaction to this needs to be intelligent and co-ordinated.

What is a Multi-Jurisdictional Investigation?

Modern business and finance often cross borders. This means that any legal problems that arise can involve numerous law enforcement agencies in a number of countries. Any corporation or senior executive involved has to know how to respond to these.

Such responses are what Rahman Ravelli specialises in. The response in such a situation has to be intelligent, well-timed and, when necessary, robust. This is what we do.

Our lawyers have the relevant knowledge and expertise when it comes to the country you are trading in, the legal issues you are facing and dealing with the agencies who are investigating you.

In such circumstances speed of thought and action are important. We create a tailor-made legal team that can address every aspect of your case, however complex it may appear. Whether it be allegations regarding fraud, bribery and corruption, tax, competition and cartels, asset recovery, money laundering, civil fraud or even dispute resolution, we manage every stage of the case for you.

We work on the biggest and most complicated national and international investigations for corporate clients, senior business figures and high net worth individuals. Every case is different. But each case that crosses borders or involves a number of law enforcement agencies requires quick, intelligent assessment of the arguments and evidence and a careful and coordinated response.


Rahman Ravelli is recognised internationally as a firm that goes wherever it is necessary to go to represent those investigated by any number of organisations in any number of countries. Crossing the globe at a moment’s notice whenever we are needed is our speciality. It what gets us results and has led to us winning awards and top rankings in UK and worldwide legal guides.

We have the resources, the expertise and the international links with legal experts around the world to ensure that no case is too large, too far away or too complex for us to take on and gain the best possible outcome for a client.

If your business has crossed borders you may, at some point, require legal representation that does the same. At Rahman Ravelli we are worldwide specialists. We know that different countries and different law enforcement agencies can present challenges for those who are investigated. But we meet those challenges for clients, wherever in the world they do their business.
