The COVID-19 global pandemic is provoking vast regulatory, economic and legal changes. These changes will create more opportunities for malfeasance as well as increased interest on the part of companies to control and detect wrongdoing.

At FTI Consulting, we have extensive experience in conducting investigations. Whether it is investigating complicated Ponzi schemes, improper stock trading practices or billing fraud, our forensic investigations team of accountants, economists, statisticians, and business experts can smartly and efficiently sift through complex data to support legal strategy or act as an independent investigator. In this section of our 2020 Insights: Top Disputes & Investigations, we highlight our work helping clients resolve disputes on major Forensic Investigations projects.

Theft of Trade Secrets

A global engineering, procurement, construction and installation company was accused of using stolen trade secrets to win a $2 billion contract. The company asked FTI Consulting to help resolve the complaint.

The Plaintiff accused our client of stealing trade secrets by recruiting an executive from within the Plaintiff’s ranks. The Plaintiff believed that our client was provided with the Plaintiff’s bid strategy and pricing for a significant contract that both the Plaintiff and our client were bidding on.
