Work Department

International regulation and corporate crime.

Position

As founder and senior partner at Rahman Ravelli, Aziz Rahman orchestrates the firm’s ever-increasing national and international caseload. His widely acknowledged specialist knowledge and impressive track record see him involved in many of the major corruption investigations while accumulating a client list that includes some of the most notable corporations, professionals and high net worth individuals. His proactive and robust defence work combined with his knack of putting together and directing intelligent, astute defence teams has brought considerable success in cases involving serious and corporate fraud, complex crime, bribery and corruption and compliance and regulatory matters.

He has come to be viewed as one of the best in his field, thanks to his ability to analyse complex issues quickly and identify the best tactical approach in even the most complicated international and multi-jurisdictional cases. He has a growing list of clients who want him to carry out internal corporate investigations, in order to identify wrongdoing and self-report it. His popularity in this area has risen especially quickly since the introduction of deferred prosecution agreements; of which he already has more experience than most. His strategic, determined approach makes him the logical choice for clients from all businesses and professions who want an outcome that avoids a criminal prosecution.

He routinely deals with the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), the National Crime Agency (NCA), City of London Police, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), international bodies such as the FBI, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), OLAF and Interpol and police and anti-corruption agencies worldwide.

His firm was the first to lodge an appeal with the European Court of Human Rights to challenge the civil burden of proof in civil recovery cases.
