Internal documents inquiry

In an ongoing Phase II merger clearance investigation, FTI Consulting’s client needed to respond to a Request for Information (‘RFI’) received from DG Comp that required the identification, preservation, searching, and production of internal documents from thirty-eight employees over three years.

Where regulators are still expecting companies to produce internal documents under seemingly insurmountable deadlines and without accommodations for COVID-19 home and working travel restrictions, experts who understand how to make each hour count, under significant pressure, are critical to ensuring a successful outcome. With extensive expertise in handling large data volumes, complex data sources, and the technical and procedural requirements of merger clearance investigations in Europe, the United States, and Canada, FTI Consulting’s Technology team frequently is called upon to act in this capacity as a trusted adviser to counsel and client to get the deal completed.
