Work Department

Viv is a Senior Associate in our Fraud and Investigations Group. He specialises in advising clients on how to identify and mitigate legal and ethical risks around fraud, bribery and corruption, with a particular emphasis on developing markets.

He has assisted clients to conduct internal investigations; gather evidence from whistleblowers, employees and other witnesses; bring civil and criminal proceedings against employees, directors and agents; self-report unlawful activity to law enforcement agencies, corporate regulators and watchdogs; and respond to regulators’ investigations into money laundering and organised criminal activity. In particular, Viv has assisted clients to engage with multilateral development banks (World Bank, Asian Development Bank, European Bank for Reconstruction & Development etc).

Viv has developed and rolled out policies, training, investigations and “lessons learned” frameworks on behalf of clients. He emphasises advice that is commercially-sensitive, practical and easily integrated into existing business processes.

Viv has particular experience of advising clients in the energy, engineering & construction, financial services, and industrial sectors. He has advised clients on issues emerging from Australia, China, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Russia, Ukraine, Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates and the United States of America.

Viv regularly speaks at industry events and conducts client training sessions on subjects related to bribery, corruption, fraud and corporate crime.

Before joining Eversheds, Viv was an Associate at a global US law firm, an Associate Director at the leading business risk consultancy, and a secondee to the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (the diplomatic service of the UK) in Russia.
