Full suite of forensic, investigative, and fraud risk services and capabilities

Our financial investigation services

The number of investigations arising from whistleblowing activity is growing exponentially.  Our Whistleblower Triage Investigations enable organizations and their outside counsel to take a highly targeted approach to both the scope and duration of the investigation. This enables clients to quickly and defensibly assess whether the allegations have merit, control their spend and avoid unnecessary expense in cases in which the allegations are unfounded.   

  • Financial Investigations: We work with organizations and counsel by independently uncovering the facts, reviewing, and analyzing complex financial information, and providing insight based on experience, expertize, and proven investigative practices. 
  • Due Diligence: We perform open-source background investigations of persons and entities implicated in a reported matter. We gather information about undisclosed business or conflicts of interest, indicators of unexplained wealth or heavy indebtedness, prior criminal activity or a pattern of civil litigation that corresponds to an allegation. 
  • Forensic Digital Analysis: We collect, preserve, process, upload and review electronic records as part of fact-finding activities. We apply targeted search terms, advanced analytics, and AI based upon the nature of a reported matter and review and tag relevant responsive and responsive emails and other electronically stored information.
