Questions & Answers

Saverio Lembo heads Bär & Karrer’s white-collar crime practice group, as well as the litigation team in Geneva. He has extensive experience in business crime defence, asset recovery, commercial and financial litigation, international judicial assistance, and arbitration. Saverio Lembo regularly assists clients in a number of complex commercial and criminal proceedings, in international commercial and sport (CAS) arbitrations. He is frequently involved in multi-jurisdictional matters requiring methodical coordination of strategy.

What attracted you to a career in white-collar crime?

The diversity of the matters, the immediate action that is often required from the lawyers and the international dimension of the cases.

What did you find most challenging about starting out in this area of law?

More than 10 years ago, large Swiss law firms were very reluctant about the necessity of having a white-collar crime department. I therefore had difficulties in convincing my partners to officially create such a practice. In those days, this area of law was difficult to market and rather left to boutique firms. Times have changed: cases like Madoff, and more recently 1MDB and FIFA, made full-service firms realise the importance of offering services such as asset tracing and business crime defence to corporate clients and executives. Nowadays, it has become a no-brainer.

How has the role of a white-collar crime lawyer changed since you started practising?

Over the years, one can note a growing cooperation between prosecuting authorities of different countries. The corollary of this situation is that white-collar crime matters require henceforth a coordinated intervention of various law firms, in various languages and in various countries. Besides, complex matters also require that the law firms are sufficiently staffed with qualified specialists.

What are some current significant trends in the anti-money laundering space?

Cybercriminality is definitely a trend to watch. Criminal tax offences have also become more and more popular, in particular because aggravated tax misdemeanours have become, in Switzerland, a predicate offence for money laundering since 2016. This situation has logically triggered more suspicion activity reports from banks. Consequently, prosecuting authorities have opened more criminal proceedings for money laundering.

What issues arise when a foreign authority becomes involved in a corruption case?

A variety of issues can arise, depending on the position of the foreign authority. For instance, Swiss prosecutors might have difficulties in establishing a predicate offence committed abroad if the suspect still has a leading role in his or her country of origin. Inversely, when a foreign country is going after a former politician and has become a private plaintiff in the Swiss proceedings, a more proactive cooperation can be expected. Besides this, foreign prosecuting authorities sometimes summon Swiss citizens to depose abroad, putting them at risk of infringing our criminal code (economic espionage, banking secrecy, etc).

What makes Bär & Karrer stand out from competitors?

The size of our white-collar crime practice group has significantly increased: we are now more than 40 lawyers. We are able to act responsively and line up business crime specialists in all linguistic regions of Switzerland (we have offices in Zurich, Geneva, Lugano and Zug). Also, we are a fully integrated law firm – meaning that, for us, it is a priority that our know-how is circulated across all our offices.
