Today, I visit with Mark Rainsford and Jason Sugarman, principals with RS Legal Strategies which is a pioneering Queen’s Counsel led business in the areas of crime investigations, fraud and legal strategy. Its world-class professionals include leading and junior counsel, a solicitor, a former member of the judiciary and special advisor to the Serious Fraud Office, two former investigators, analysts, researchers, tax fraud and compliance specialists. RSL has special expertise in UK DPAs and NPAs and offers an Independent Compliance Monitor or Reviewers.

RS Legal Strategies employs former senior UK law enforcement investigators to provide expert analysis and an invaluable strategic advice on evidential and disclosure issues. RS Legal Strategies conducts internal investigations into wide variety of areas including: fraud detection, business and corporate crime, proceeds of crime and money laundering investigations and regulatory compliance.

In 2017, RS Legal Strategies formed a strategic alliance with Affiliated Monitors (AMI). With the complementary experience of the US and UK teams, it allows companies to take a more pro-active approach to addressing ethics and compliance deficiencies comprehensively and through the efforts of an independent advisors, there is a much greater likelihood that a successful outcome and improved practices can be achieved. Through the combination of RS Legal’s experience with UK enforcement actions, with AMI’s global ethics and compliance monitorships, this alliance can significantly increase the likelihood of any of a corporate client securing a beneficial outcome resulting from ongoing investigations.

Together AMI and RS Legal Strategy offer a unique and compelling vision. Although independent, RS Legal Strategies works alongside its client’s lawyers, thus allowing outside and in-house counsel to leverage the exceptional know how from both a UK and USA strategy and compliance consulting perspective.

The interviewees are Mark Rainsford QC, RS Legal Strategies Chairman and Head of Litigation and Jason Sugarman, RS Legal Strategies Managing Director.
