The Baltic Varul law firm has joined the Roxin Alliance -- a global network of white-collar crime experts.
According to Varul, "the Roxin Alliance is a global network of white collar crime experts headquartered in Munich, Germany with a presence in over 30 countries. Established in response to the growing internationalization of white collar criminal practices and the associated criminal compliance requirements across multiple jurisdictions, the Roxin Alliance through its vast geographical presence is the one stop solution provider to the plethora of challenges that commercial organizations face from a white collar crime or compliance perspective." The alliance was established in 2011, and combines recommended lawyers and scientific experts, committed to establishing best practices and solutions. It is a member of the World Bank – Global Forum on Law, Justice, and Development, and is closely involved with the anti-corruption and governance working group of the same.
Varul's representatives will be Marko Kairjak and Dmitri Teplohh in Estonia, Aldis Alliks in Latvia, and Arturas Gutauskas in Lithuania. Kairjak was proud to explain the new network: “We are looking forward to sharing know-how and international best practices with the Roxin Alliance due to the growing need for cross-border legal advice in the fields of criminal defense, compliance and asset recovery."
Karl Sidhu, the Director of the Roxin Alliance, explains that, “the globalization of white collar crime has necessitated the need to be able to offer legal solutions that factor in a multi jurisdictional approach. We are extremely honored and privileged that we have a strong partner in the Baltics – Varul joining the Roxin Alliance. Members from over 30 countries join me in welcoming Varul to the Roxin Alliance and we look forward to a strong and effective partnership in the region."
