We expect the global pandemic to affect securities, accounting and regulatory enforcement in a variety of complex ways. In the U.S., share prices may have been affected by the impact of COVID-19; economic stimulus efforts like the CARES Act may require firms to show they complied with the terms of the legislation; and accounting authorities will likely offer new interpretations of accounting rules. These issues – and others – will also play out internationally in different ways.

We stand ready to meet the new challenges of the post-pandemic economy. We have deep expertise in a wide range of securities, accounting, and regulatory environments around the world. In this section of our 2020 Insights: Top Disputes & Investigations, we highlight several recent engagements touching on these experiences and our work helping clients resolve disputes on major Securities, Accounting and Regulatory Enforcement projects.

Investigating Global Profitability for Engineering Company

A large international engineering and manufacturing company was facing regulatory investigations and litigation in several countries. Counsel retained FTI Consulting based on our robust knowledge of the business’s structure and operations from prior engagements.

Because the investigation had an extremely limited timeline, FTI Consulting rapidly assembled a team of forensic accountants and data & analytics professionals. We analyzed and calculated the client’s global profitability of the products under investigation across a variety of attributes, providing a level of granularity not previously available to the client.
