What We Do
As trusted advisors to companies, financial institutions, and law firms around the world, BRG’s Global Investigations + Strategic Intelligence experts uncover facts, make sense of them, place them in context, and develop cutting-edge strategies to assist clients with addressing their most significant challenges. Whether in a dispute, contemplating a business transaction, assessing a system of compliance, investigating a potential fraud, or addressing a regulatory inquiry, our experts develop the information necessary to favorably resolve the issue.
We provide critical litigation intelligence in shareholder disputes, theft of intellectual property, product liability class actions, environmental claims, antitrust cases, and more. Our reports have been used to successfully bring closure to allegations of fraud and internal malfeasance; Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), anti-corruption, and anti-money laundering investigations; whistleblower complaints; mergers, acquisitions, and divestures; contests for corporate control and proxy battles; identifying illegal or inappropriate computer use; and independent monitorships.
We have advised clients on multijurisdictional regulatory inquiries and investigations, complex compliance issues, crucial business transactions, and high-stakes litigation. We have acted at the request of regulators, courts, and corporations as compliance monitors to oversee an organization’s adherence to a settlement agreement or court order.
We incorporate sophisticated, custom data analytics into every matter to ensure that our advice is informed by the relevant available data. In many situations where our clients prefer to be “hands on” with their data, we build bespoke applications to “liberate” the data and present our analysis in an interactive manner. To manage workflow or manage information flowing between our team and the client, we often build applications to facilitate this process throughout the engagement in a manner that leaves an auditable trail to explain why certain key decisions were made throughout the project. These innovative tools, coupled with rapid inventorying, inspecting, and validating data from disparate systems, allow us to identify and model useful information to support informed decision making. When applicable, we employ various data mining and data science techniques, including statistical analysis, descriptive statistics, exploratory and confirmatory data analysis, and predictive analytics, to develop useful and timely business intelligence.
