Multinational companies, entrepreneurs and corporate individuals face growing legal challenges around the world in the field of white collar litigation. Investigative authorities and regulatory agencies are on the rise and with the use of modern systems and tools, coupled with more strict laws and regulations, enforcement activity is growing. As such, white collar criminal law is an area of practice in which KG has developed a very strong practice over the last 20 years.
Our team regularly handles a wide range of complex, often cross border high-stakes cases advising and representing clients before the investigative authorities and courts of all levels in relation to cases involving money laundering, bribery, forgery, sanctions and securities violations, perjury, manslaughter by negligence, grievous bodily harm, defamation etc. We also often act on behalf of our clients as plaintiffs and civil party in the criminal proceedings in relation to all sorts of financial crimes committed against corporations.
The team is led by Managing Partner John C. Kyriakides and Partner Panos Alexandris (on leave), who currently holds the position of general secretary of the Ministry of Justice and is on permanent leave from his duties at KG.
