In a period of deep financial recession and ever increasing global enforcement, financial crime, also often referred to as white-collar crime, has become both intensified and increasingly more complex.
Illegal actions, such as financial fraud, money laundering, tax evasion, securities fraud, bankruptcy fraud, contraband, crime of usury, are amongst some of the areas that the governments have taken increasingly aggressive postures towards businesses and individuals. Consequences from committing such financial offenses are in need of equivalent legal treatment. Officers and directors of companies are subject to intense scrutiny concerning not only their decisions but the overall business practices of the company.
