Global anti-bribery and corruption investigation
We assisted our client, a global engineering company, and its external legal counsel in its internal investigations into allegations of bribery and corruption and associated intermediaries. Our work involved conducting a forensic accounting investigation to identify payments to numerous intermediaries, mostly over a 12-14 year period across multiple territories and using multiple sources of structured and unstructured data, including banking data, accounting information, and hard copy records. Our work was provided to the relevant authorities and enabled the client to demonstrate that it had fully cooperated with the relevant authorities, which resulted in a favourable settlement for our client.
Seeking out fraud in a global business
Our client suspected fraud or misconduct at one of its global distributors. Using data analytics techniques, our team investigated, looking for indications of bribery, corruption or fraud. The results of this analysis informed our on-site visits, reducing the cost of the reviews. The resulting forensic report meant that the client eventually took legal action against the distributor, as well as a number of employees.
