Norwegian Economic Crimes Investigation of S&O Client is Dropped Without Charges


NOVEMBER 2017

The Norwegian economic crimes unit, Okokrim, announced that it has dropped its two-year investigation of Schertler & Onorato client Jo Lunder and will not pursue criminal charges against him.  Mr. Lunder is the former Chief Executive Officer of VimpelCom (now called VEON), an international telecommunications company based in the Netherlands.  Schertler & Onorato attorneys David Schertler and Lisa Manning worked closely with co-counsel in Norway to persuade Norwegian prosecutors that the corruption charges under investigation were unsubstantiated.  Schertler & Onorato has substantial experience in international white-collar cases like the VimpelCom matter, which require coordinated management of criminal investigations being conducted both in the United States and in one or more foreign jurisdictions.
