Uncovering and Resolving a Global Fraud Investigations & Forensics

Following the completion of a large acquisition of a commodity trading platform, our client discovered that one of its new senior traders had diverted a large amount of capital to an offshore account with a deliberately obscured ownership structure.

We launched a multi-faceted investigation employing industry experts and forensic auditors, and successfully traced the assets through hidden accounts in the Caribbean, Europe and ultimately back to North America. The investigation finally revealed that the account’s beneficial owner was in fact the trader himself.

We worked closely with the client’s legal counsel throughout the subsequent litigation and regulatory proceedings.
