Investigations & White Collar, Government Relations and Compliance

Our White Collar Crime and Investigations Practice group assist corporations, officers, individuals, employees, and directors in the ever-evolving and dynamic business context and at every stage of the enforcement process.

It is noteworthy that investigations have become more sophisticated. Technical and pejorative challenges arise due to the increasingly elaborate tactics used by perpetrators. At Famsville, we have developed a broad knowledge of investigations and enquiries, and also developed capacity and the understanding of the relevant criminal laws to enable us to guide clients through investigations, and compliance with extant regulations whilst increasing the prospect of a successful outcome.

Famsville draws upon the considerable experience of Partners and Associates with cognate experience in government enforcement, fraud detection, and corporate investigation. Our team has a firm grasp of the Nigerian legal framework and foreign anti-corruption regulations. We go beyond offering legal services, we understand the risk and the marketplace where our clients operate; we guide them through regulatory and compliance slope to guarantee their global business competitive advantage.
