Panama Papers

Summary: Using data from the leaked documents of Mossack Fonseca, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists has created an online database.

In the wake of the 11.5 million documents leaked last month by the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists is preparing to unveil a searchable online database of the documents. The database will be made public Monday afternoon but some search functions are already available.

Records on the site include thousands of lawyers and law firms from small solo practices to large international giants. Some of the documents are believed to be part of a 2013 investigation conducted by the offshore industry by the ICIJ.  The reasons for other documents to be included are unclear.

Dozens of major U.S. and international law firms have been identified by the Am Law Daily in the database already posted online. The numbers are expected to grow with the additional data from Mossack Fonseca. The ICIJ stresses that lawyers and law firms included in the database does not mean they are involved in illegal activities. They stated, “There are legitimate uses for offshore companies and trusts. We do not intend to suggest or imply that any persons, companies or other entities included in the ICIJ Offshore Leaks Database have broken the law or otherwise acted improperly.”
