In today’s fast-changing environment, threats such as fraud, corruption and money laundering are very real and carry with them potentially significant reputational, financial and criminal impacts.
There is also a higher level of supervision and regulatory action than we have seen in the past, and as a result multinationals and government agencies in Australia have to manage financial crime issues that are subject to greater scrutiny.
Our 80-strong Australian team of forensic can help our clients pre-empt these threats, react quickly and confidently and navigate to a better position whilst addressing:
- Negative reputational, criminal and financial impacts
- Legal disputes, such as class action lawsuits, resulting in potential legal liability, claims and settlements
- Security breaches
- Regulatory inspections.
We work across jurisdictions with our colleagues around the world to give clients the global specialist coverage and advice they need. Our expert team operating throughout Australia and Asia Pacific can quickly assemble and respond as appropriate, bringing together experienced:
- Computer forensic practitioners
- Data analysts
- Corporate investigators
- Ex law enforcement officers
- Former regulators.
Our global network allows us to combine an understanding of local business cultures and regulatory issues to leave the clients better prepared to protect their assets and reputation.

Forensic technology and Digital Discovery
