Timothy Loh LLP Successfully Represents Former Employee of Fortune Global 100 Company in Case Involving Suspicion of Fraud and Dishonesty

Our White Collar Crime & Regulatory Defence Practice successfully represented a former employee of a Fortune Global 500 bank in a case involving suspicion of breaches of the provisions of the Theft Ordinance including those relating to obtaining a pecuniary advantage by deception. Though professional conduct prohibitions relating to client confidentiality prohibit us from disclosing details of the alleged breaches and the circumstances giving rise to enquiry by the relevant government authority, our criminal defence lawyers presented a case to the authorities, carefully balancing the need to avoid any admissions of liability, the need to appear co-operative and the need to ensure that the case presented made out a proper basis for a meritrious defence under the law. Ultimately, following the submissions, the matter did not proceed to prosecution.
