Who needs legal services of representation before NAB?

Individuals under investigation for or have been charged with white-collar crimes, such as commercial or personal fraud, money laundering, embezzlement, financial reporting, or tax offenses. Under the direction of our firm’s leadership, our attorneys have a strong track record of successfully settling client disputes in a way that minimizes or eliminates the impact on their clients. When going to trial is required, we vigorously defend our client’s interests in court. Our clients, who are employees or independent contractors of those above, have been successfully represented in Pakistani trial courts up to the Supreme Court. In addition, we have filed constitutional petitions for clients harassed in the name of accountability and have challenged the constitutionality of the acts above. As a result, some of our clients have been granted relief as per the constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

The Investigation and Inquiry process encompasses all of the procedures outlined in this Code for collecting evidence carried out by a police officer or any person (other than a Magistrate) who a Magistrate authorizes on this behalf. These proceedings may be carried out by a police officer or anyone other than a Magistrate. An investigation is a process of gathering information or evidence concerning a crime to ascertain whether or not a crime has been committed and to establish the identity of the individual who committed the crime. If the first three goals are accomplished with flying colors, then the crime can be said to have been solved. Several other outcomes, including the recovery of stolen property, the dissuasion of persons from engaging in criminal activities, and the satisfaction of victims of crime, have also been related to this procedure.

Any inquiry or investigation required to be carried out per the National Accountability Ordinance 1999 must be finished as quickly as possible reasons, and feasible. The materials and evidence need to be gathered by the Chairman of the NAB or another officer who has been authorized to do so. If the Chairman of the NAB believes that the material against the accused is sufficient to justify the filing of a reference, then he will continue to refer the matter to court.
