AVERUM Legal’s White Collar Defense and Investigations team represents large and small businesses, C-Suite officers and other executives, boards, board committees, public servants, professionals and other individuals in criminal and regulatory prosecutions, actions and investigations. The legal team has first-hand knowledge of how investigations are conducted and how members of law enforcement develop cases, providing essential assistance to our clients embroiled in the process.

The proper response to a crisis can preserve the viability of an organization and maintain an individual’s liberty. The ability of our White Collar team to draw on the skills of other attorneys within the firm as the need arises is an essential aspect of their success; collaborating with transactional attorneys with expertise in particular industries provides an added element that typical criminal defence firms do not possess. For that reason, our White Collar lawyers often collaborate with other law firms that lack those capabilities.

Services we provide:
  • legal support of clients during the pre-investigation check, preliminary investigation and judicial proceedings;
  • representation in the High Anti-Corruption Court, local, appellate courts and the Supreme Court
  • analysis and assessment of civil relations regarding the presence or absence of criminal risks;
  • attorneys’ investigations for gathering evidence and for establishing, checking and fixing certain facts;
  • advising on the anti-money laundering and anti-corruption legislation, as well as on complying with mandatory procedures in these areas;
  • advising corporate clients on the criminal procedure law when conducting checks by state supervisory authorities, such as the Accounting Chamber, the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine, the State Tax Service of Ukraine, etc.
