Investigations and White Collar Defence

Aroeira Salles has extensive experience advising on civil and criminal investigations, as well as defending clients in public civil, improbity and collective actions. We guide our clients throughout all phases of these complex, high-stakes proceedings, from the initial allegation to the final resolution.

Projects are often subject to auditing by control institutions, which can lead to investigations initiated by public prosecutors. Such investigations can relate to the improper use of public funds as well as corruption, money laundering and organised crime.

We help clients to navigate government investigations and lead negotiations with enforcement authorities. We also design and conduct internal investigations to resolve internal issues with efficiency and discretion. Our practice also includes acting in relation to the defence of clients in criminal proceedings.
