Coleen Critchley is a Senior Legal Counsel at ENQUIRE. She uses her broad legal know-how and prac-tical experience in complex investigation projects, which often focus on financial market issues (such as combating money laundering, corporate governance, conflicts of interest, client tax compliance) and white-collar crime (corruption, fraud, etc.).
Prior to joining ENQUIRE, Coleen gained invaluable professional experience working for 15 years in different areas of the Legal & Compliance departments of a major Swiss bank (both in Switzerland and the UK). Coleen namely is a client tax compliance subject matter expert, an area in which she built up and co-lead a global advisory team to advise local compliance departments as well as the Business on the bank’s client tax compliance framework (this particularly included global policy own-ership, training and advice on complex client tax matters). Due to her vast experience as an inhouse senior legal and compliance officer, she is intimately familiar with banking processes and the chal-lenges that financial institutions face in their day-to-day business. Before joining the bank, Coleen worked in a law firm in Zurich that focused on general commercial and corporate law as well as banking and securities exchange law.
