Maurice BurkeDLA Piper

One of the first ports of call for bet-the-company investigations in Asia Pacific, DLA Piper garners praise from clients for its ‘knowledge of compliance, sanctions, and antitrust laws in the region‘. The team fields first-class expertise in the full array of contentious regulatory and investigative processes, be it fraud, corruption, money laundering or trade issues, and particularly excels in crisis and media management, including internal compliance and employment law matters. The arrival of Hogan Lovells Lee & Lee‘s former practice head Maurice Burke, a leading dispute practitioner in this field, further reinforced the team’s capabilities in the investigations and white-collar crime space. Regulatory litigator Nathan Bush is the other key point of contact in the team; despite primarily focusing on antitrust law and competition, he has a wealth of experience in anti-corruption mandates, most notably matters involving China and the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
