Investigation dropped against client in SFO Unaoil bribery enquiry


The firm has been instructed since last year on behalf of a company owner who was being investigated by the SFO for offences of conspiracy to commit bribery offences in contravention of the Prevention of Corruption Act 1906. Since 2016 the SFO has been conducting a criminal investigation into the activities of Unaoil, its officers, its employees and its agents in connection with suspected offences of bribery, corruption and money laundering.  We are pleased to report that following an extensive enquiry that the matter has been dropped against our client. The defence team was led by senior partner Mark Bowen with Sean Larkin QC  instructed as counsel.
