White Collar Crime
The consequences of a criminal investigation extend beyond loss of productivity and loss of assets. The immediate and irreparable devastating effect suffered by a company or individual facing a criminal charge is one´s reputation and good name. As international trade has grown, so has the exposure of companies that deal with foreign governments and businesses. Governments in the jurisdictions covered by Miranda follow the worldwide trends in adopting sophisticated and strict regulations for detecting, investigating and punishing white collar crimes. Either because the laws are highly technical or because even if based on international law they often receive the specificities of local practices, international companies are at constant risk of being investigated for alleged violations.
