Investigations & Public Enforcement

Investigations & Public Enforcement

Cases involving accusations of financial mismanagement, fraud, bribery, money laundering, corruption or violations of international sanctions seriously disrupt a client's operations and damage their reputation. Houthoff’s Investigations & Public Enforcement practice group assists clients with criminal matters, administrative supervision and enforcement cases, and internal and external investigations. At a client’s request, we can conduct internal investigations, advise, litigate and negotiate with regulators and the Public Prosecution Service. Houthoff delivers swift solutions that address the underlying problems for urgent matters.

Our clients include national and international companies, their directors and supervisory directors, bankruptcy trustees and government bodies. Sometimes, our clients are injured by non-compliant conduct; sometimes they find themselves accused of the same.
