White-Collar Crimes

Why PwC Legal Ukraine?

  • We have a strong track record of supporting clients in the course of criminal proceedings. This is demonstrated by the fact that since 2012, none of the proceedings handled by our team at the stage of pre-court investigation was passed to the court
  • Our team is comprised of outstanding professionals in the area of criminal law, led by practitioners with over 10 years of experience in supporting clients throughout white-collar criminal proceedings
  • We have extensive experience in handling a broad range of business-related criminal proceedings, including tax evasion, forgery and law enforcement scrutiny
  • We have worked out an efficient, comprehensive approach to interacting with criminal authorities throughout all stages of criminal proceedings, and we are well known in the Ukrainian market for our policy of not entering into any deals with investigators or prosecutors. As a firm, we see the only way to finish criminal proceedings is to close the case due to absence of crime
  • We believe that the most appropriate strategy to pursue in order to minimize risks of initiating white-collar criminal proceeding, or, if the one already exists, is to close the case and avoid any accusations in this regard


Our client base in Ukraine includes both multinational and domestic companies which operate in various sectors. Our experience includes protecting the interests of large taxpayers and foreign investors, as well as defending top management in the course of white-collar-related criminal proceedings. Furthermore, we provided support to the General Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine in a project related to the development of an automatic system dealing with pre-trial investigation workflow in Ukraine.
