Grant Thornton regularly conducts investigations for corporates, regulators and prosecution agencies.
Investigations range from alleged employee fraud through to professional negligence to multi-jurisdictional investigations which can often support complex litigation or insolvency proceedings. Some of the topics we cover are: money laundering and terrorist financing, Insider trading, mis-selling of retail and wholesale financial products, market abuse and illegal trading, asset-tracing and recovery, sanctions, fraud, bribery and corruption, anti-corruption and enhanced due diligence, virtual currencies, exotic and complex financial instruments and OTC products, mortgage fraud, contractual breaches, offshore financial centres.
As well as investigating instances of fraud, we help organisations develop effective fraud response plans, either as a proactive preventative tool or subsequent remedial action. These plans incorporate a fraud risk assessment and appropriate fraud risk mitigation methodology, to minimise the disruption issues such as these can cause.
We operate a dedicated service line to help investment scam victims (see https://www.grantthornton.co.uk/investmentscams/), we look to work with victims to recover lost funds as well as looking at claims against professional advisers who may have allowed their name and reputation to be used to promote a fraud.
We are a national practice with over 120 Forensic specialists, drawing on Grant Thornton's national and international presence for industry and sector knowledge.
