Criminal and White-Collar Crime

"Excellent litigators."

Legal 500, 2021

Our criminal and white-collar crime practice includes several partners, including former government prosecutors and regulators, who have collectively tried and prosecuted more than a hundred trials. Together, they bring experience and firsthand knowledge of the way government and other agencies operate and conduct investigations.

Our litigators have constantly garnered praise from the market. In 2021, Legal 500 described us as “excellent litigators”. Our team is renowned for its investigative skill, seasoned judgment and consistently clear and persuasive advice. This makes ABS & Co a powerful advocate for clients. Banks, business conglomerates, publicly listed companies and other government officials seek our counsel in navigating through complicated and sensitive investigations.

Our areas of expertise include advising and representing clients in relation to insider trading, corporate fraud, securities fraud, anti-money laundering (AML), sanctions and regulatory compliance and other technical issues that can attract criminal liability. Additionally, we have extensive experience in representing clients in anti-corruption matters involving the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP), Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), Anti-Corruption Department, Financial Monitoring Unit (FMU) etc.

In addition to this, our criminal practice group – led by a trial attorney (Imran Malik) with over four decades of experience in representing clients in murder trials, murder references, rape, drug and other offences prosecuted under the Pakistan Penal Code – has a stellar track record of successfully defending clients at trial.
