The Claro Group conducts a wide-range of investigations for management, audit and special committees, and their counsel.  Our professionals have legal, accounting and regulatory backgrounds, including service in the US Department of Justice (DOJ) and the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). We also have global investigative and compliance experience as partners at Big Four accounting firms.  This expertise, coupled with Claro’s independent platform and global network, enable our professionals to execute engagements with speed and flexibility while prudently managing costs.

We have extensive experience conducting domestic and cross-border investigations involving fraud, misconduct, bribery and corruption (including FCPA and foreign bribery statutes such as the UK Bribery Act), false claims and other sensitive matters for clients in the US, Europe, South America, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.   Our findings have been presented to the SEC, DOJ, U.K. Serious Fraud Office and other domestic and foreign regulatory authorities – while complying with restrictive data protection and privacy regimes around the world.   We also counsel clients on regulatory compliance, including proactive and remedial projects such as FCPA pre-acquisition due diligence, independent compliance audits, internal audit support, and internal control enhancements designed to prevent, detect and respond to fraud and misconduct.

Our areas of focus typically include:

  • Forensic accounting, including risk-based judgmental sampling and analysis of underlying records and supporting documentation related to specific accounting transactions
  • Forensic technology, including data analytics and discovery management
  • Asset tracing / reconstruction of financial transactions
  • Supporting counsel in interviews of accounting, finance and audit personnel
  • Reporting on investigation findings and recommended remedial measures, where appropriate
  • Assisting counsel with presentations to the DOJ, SEC and other regulatory authorities on investigative procedures and factual findings
