Despite the best efforts of regulators, internal controls and risk departments, corruption and corporate fraud continue to challenge businesses and governments across the globe. From asset misappropriation to financial statement fraud, no entity is immune. Society’s growing expectations in relation to Integrity, coupled with the increased transparency afforded by technology, pose an ever-changing landscape to all business leaders. When facing acts of fraud, government regulatory inquiries, major litigation or transactional disputes, clients know that we have the investigative experience they need, when they need it, where they need it.

  • Ability to oversee teams that will work on various data analysis engagements:
