A Proactive Fraud Investigation for a Global Fortune 500 Company
A global Fortune 500 company wanted to proactively investigate several of its global units to root out possible fraud after it was investigated in one jurisdiction. They turned to the FTI Technology team to provide Story Development services leveraging advanced analytics and experienced researchers for fact memo preparation. This team analyzed documents for numerous global markets, with hundreds of thousands of documents in many of these markets, and typically presented initial findings within 5-10 business days. For several jurisdictions, FTI prepared lengthy outlines detailing evidence of the suspicious activities including identifying the key players and related communications and other supporting documentation. In some instances, the researchers uncovered new issues of which counsel was unaware, resulting in additional fruitful investigation into other types of misconduct. As a result of FTI’s efforts, the company had a better understanding of its risk and was able to curtail further wrongdoing, including conducting informed employee interviews and, in some cases, terminating responsible employees.
