Representation of PEP (Politically exposed person)
Working with private clients always requires a special approach, confidentiality and good faith. When taking legal advice, a private client reveals their most intimate problems, so they need to be sure of the lawyers’ professionalism and reliability. The VigoLex Team understands this well and is ready to become not only a reliable partner in the world of law but also a consulting psychologist who will hear you out and give advice on how best to act in a particular situation.
The VigoLex team’s representatives have unique experience in dealing with the most demanding category of private clients – with politically exposed persons, the so-called PEPs. We are aware of the high demands of clients like these along with the difficulties that clients may face when completing mandatory compliance, setting up bank accounts, and registering companies abroad, where they personally act either as founders or ultimate beneficiaries.
In addition, our specialists have professional experience in representing PEPs in defamation cases, where honor, dignity and business reputation have been affected as a result of dissemination of false information in the media and the Internet. It is a specific and complex category of cases that requires special knowledge not only of the legislation but also of the practices of the ECtHR.
