We help clients to respond to regulatory investigations, especially related to anti-money laundering (AML), sanctions, bribery & corruption, cross-border taxation and relevant competition and pricing regulations in many jurisdictions
We help clients and their internal and external legal counsel examine corporate history (often involving vast quantities of electronic data) using our forensic technology skills and tools, conduct reviews of accounting and other types of information, interview personnel, report on findings, and assist in negotiations with the regulator.

- Report on the findings
- Assist with presentations to regulators
Our involvement as globally respected experts assists clients in resolving these complex and very challenging issues as quickly and economically as possible. Our involvement has resulted in lower fines being paid by clients, and speedier resolution of regulatory issues under investigation.
