JPM has established a Criminal Law and Criminal Compliance team.

According to JPM, "scrutiny of state authorities of the business sector practices is resulting in the increased number of criminal investigations and prosecutions, launched in respect of both infractions and corporate offenses, that need to be addressed with proper legal counseling to avoid or minimize serious negative consequences. In anticipation of an increase of inquiries in the second half of 2020 in this area, JPM has established a three partner-strong Criminal Law and Criminal Compliance team."

According to the firm, its Criminal Law and Criminal Compliance team's specialization includes: (i) White Collar Crimes, including Anti-Money Laundering; (ii) Corporate and Competition Crimes; (iii) Tax Fraud; (iv) Custom Crime; (v) Corruption in Public Sector; (vi) Crimes committed by Public Officials; (vii)  other Economic Crimes; (viii) Environmental Protection; (ix) Real Estate and Construction Crimes; and (x) Intellectual Property Crimes.

In addition, the firm reports, "our best practice within Criminal Law and Criminal Compliance includes: (i) Risk assessment; (ii) Internal controls; (iii) Reporting of suspicions (iv) Defense in law enforcement bodies; and (v) Defense in criminal proceedings.

Finally, the firm reports, "the Criminal Law and Criminal Compliance team also performs internal investigations where our experts conduct corporate internal investigations into the full scope of potential liability for clients who have reason to believe some wrongdoing may have taken place."
