We act for governments, listed multinationals, top-tier banks and C-suite executives.
We have been involved in many of the most significant and high profile international white-collar crime and regulatory investigations of the last decade. Because of this, we know exactly what regulators look for and how companies can end up in hot water, which means we offer an invaluable perspective when developing innovative compliance programmes which crucially work in practice.
We provide everything from initial due diligence and compliance advice through to acting as trial counsel for companies and executives facing prosecution.
By housing multi-disciplinary specialists in one firm, we have the unique flexibility to assemble the right team to suit your specific needs on a case-by-case basis.
Flexible fee structures
We may have started life as a law firm, but don’t let the words ‘law firm’ put you off: we don’t bill like a law firm.
We don’t impose billable targets on our team, and we prefer to operate on a fixed-fee basis for our clients.
Our years of experience doing business in this way means that our clients benefit from transparency, certainty and the ability to budget, regardless of the complexity or size of the matter. We will only assemble the team you need, and solve the problem you need solving, with no other motivations behind what we charge you.
The exclusive and specialised nature of our practice means we are generally conflict-free.
We have conducted a number of long-running projects and investigations with teams based within our clients’ offices, and are also well-versed leading technology-driven remote investigations in relation to dozens of others.
Almost all of our work involves an international element and we have on the ground experience in numerous jurisdictions including Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and the Americas.
We can bring together the right team to meet the requirements of your matter whatever the location, complexity and size.
Fulcrum Chambers is one of very few firms who have a real expertise in corporate white-collar defence and compliance processes.
