Position

Partner in the business crime team. Jasvinder is renowned for her specialism in acting for corporate and individual clients in fraud-related criminal investigations and prosecutions brought by domestic and international authorities. She has particularly strong experience in extradition, INTERPOL and mutual legal assistance matters, corporate internal investigations, cartel investigations undertaken by various competition authorities, and acting for corporate and individual clients in inquests. Jasvinder’s cases are largely multi-jurisdictional in nature. She acted for the managing director of Dunlop Oil and Marine Ltd, the first person to be charged with the UK criminal cartel offence, and was involved in securing the innovative ‘Marine Hose Deal’ with the US DOJ. She also represented two of the four British Airways executives facing allegations of price-fixing in the first contested trial of its kind in the UK, resulting in acquittals for all four individuals. She acts for William Browder and Hermitage Capital Management Ltd, in which INTERPOL agreed not to issue any Red Notice requested by the Russian authorities against her client. Jasvinder acts for a UK bank in the SFO’s LIBOR investigation, an individual in a significant insider dealing case prosecuted by the FCA and senior individuals in a US investment bank who are subject to a foreign criminal trial process. Jasvinder also acts in Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 cash seizure, corruption and money laundering cases. A contributing author to ‘The Law of Criminal Cartels Practice and Procedure’, she regularly writes and speaks on her areas of expertise.
