Corporate Investigations

In recent years, a plethora of new laws to fight corruption, fraud, money laundering, and insider trading have been passed. At the same time, states and corporations have implemented increasingly stringent and more comprehensive regulations in regards to compliance and corporate governance.

Paladin Associates conducts corporate investigations for clients around the globe in order to identify potential violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the Patriot Act, UK Bribery Act, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and US Treasury Office of Foreign Asset Control regulations.

Paladin Associate’s professionals work in close co-operation with a client’s legal counsel, experts from the fields of auditing, law enforcement, intelligence services, banking, finance, and computer forensics to undertake investigations to support a client; whether it be a fraud or corruption investigation, tracing missing or embezzled assets, or determining money flows.

In addition, we investigate patent and trade mark infringements, counterfeit products as well as violations of fair competition law and breach of contract.

Paladin Associates has also specialized in Third Reich stolen art investigations. On account of our experience gained through restitution cases in the 1990s, we are particularly well-positioned to support our clients in matters of determining provenance of a work of art.

We gather, assemble, and analyze pieces of information to determine the size, cause, and effect of a complex problem. We use that information to help clients develop a strategy to recover what was lost — within the context of a legal suit or a settlement. We also provide consulting to prevent such problems in the future.
