Forensic Investigations and Compliance

The fraud risk is inherent to any organization. The proper management of the fraud risk involves a mix of preventive, detective, and correction measures, all three equally important.

Fraud is a complex and sensitive matter. It is preferable to prevent it, but fraud risk cannot be reduced to zero. When it happens, it cannot be ignored and needs to be properly addresses in terms of investigations and corrective measures taken.

The investigation of fraud, corruption and other economic crimes, particularly where the integrity of senior management is called into question, requires a thorough, professional and independent approach.

Our team of trained investigators includes forensic accountants, lawyers, former regulators, former law enforcement agents, forensic technology and corporate intelligence experts.

Compliance reviews and other related assistance

Romanian companies owned and/or controlled by US, UK or French companies and/or individuals need to comply with anti-corruption regulations from US (FCPA), UK (UK Bribery) or France (SAPIN II).

In this context, the companies design and implement controls and systems to ensure compliance with such regulations (ex. code of ethics, recruitment policies, background checks, whistleblowing systems, procurement and payments policies, etc) and they ask our assistance with regular checks of the adequacy and effectiveness of such controls and systems. Such checks are also performed as part of due diligence conducted in the context of a merger or acquisition.

We are helping clients with:

  • FCPA, UK Bribery, SAPIN II compliance reviews and identify potential gaps
  • Contracts compliance reviews (ex. check of fulfillment of specific contractual commitments)

As part of such engagements, we identify potential areas for improvement and propose recommendations to address such areas.
