White Collar Crime
The Australian Securities Investment Corporation (“ASIC”) has a wide range of powers which include investigation and enforcement. ASIC investigations can be complex and take place over a considerable period of time.
ASIC investigations can involve compulsory interviews for people suspected of committing offences. This could include company directors and accountants. Once ASIC have completed their investigation, they may refer the brief to the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions so that charges can be laid.
If you or anybody in your corporation are subject to an investigation of this type, the earlier you seek legal representation, the better. Often, in our experience, negotiations at an early stage have led to favourable outcomes for people under investigation.
