Corporate Crime Case Studies

If you are looking for corporate crime case studies and need advice about the law and real results of real cases, you are in the right place.

We have a number of case studies for white collar offences and our lawyers have a wealth of experience in areas of corporate crime. Contact our Melbourne office on (03) 9670 5111 now to discuss your matter.

We give a lot of advice to individuals and companies that either are being investigated or want to look at the issues themselves. Often that pre-interview or pre-charging work is the most important that an organization can undertake to make their position safer.

These case studies have been anonymized. We have changed ages and places of offence so as to make sure that people can not identify a client of ours from these case studies.

The case studies are provided to give you an idea of the scope of work that we cover and also to have some idea of penalties in cases.

The corporate crime case studies are an indication of where our lawyers have achieved exceptional results for a particular matter. If you are charged with a similar offence, your own result may vary depending on the circumstances of the offence.
