Detailed regulations govern donations to politicians and political organizations, which means that those who wish to make such donations need to understand the relevant law. Balance of payments reports by politicians are always scrutinized by the press and if they discover any irregularities, they often report them to the general public. There are also detailed regulations governing election campaigns that companies need to be aware of.
Since this is a highly specialized area of the law and there are criminal penalties for non-compliance, it is important to obtain competent legal advice from attorneys with experience in this field. Several of our firm’s lawyers are former public prosecutors with considerable experience in dealing with these types of cases and have first-hand knowledge of how such investigations are handled by the authorities. Therefore, we are confident that we can provide our clients with expert, practical legal advice on all aspects of such cases.
