Lionel Tay Recognised As World’s Leading Investigation Lawyers in Who’s Who Legal 2015
Lionel Tay has been recognised by Who’s Who Legal 2015 independent research with clients and peers as one of the world’s leading investigation lawyers, following a global rise in demand for lawyers being called on to investigate companies, or help defend companies under investigation by regulators and/or law enforcement.
Lawyers in this publication will be able to assist both companies and individuals during investigations. They can supervise regulatory raids and advise clients as they occur, or instead act for clients who are being investigated by companies themselves. They will be able to advise on employment, data protection, confidentiality and client privilege issues which are frequently contentious during internal and regulatory investigations. They will also know when to call in experts to search through sometimes vast amounts of data.
Investigations as a practice area crosses over with regulatory specialists, white collar crime and criminal defence practitioners. For both internal and regulatory investigations, lawyers will know when to hand over information to regulators and law enforcement if necessary.
In recent times, Lionel has also been recognised as a leading Insolvency and Reorganisation practitioner in the fifth edition of Best Lawyers in Singapore 2013. Best Lawyers identifies leading lawyers in various areas of law across numerous countries based on peer-review.
