Overview

Record-setting fines and penalties, public backlash, and the risk of criminal and civil liability make the stakes surrounding allegations of white collar and securities crimes higher than ever. When these allegations are made, and organizations find themselves in the crosshairs of a government regulator, a swift and comprehensive response is required to navigate the significant legal, commercial, and reputational hurdles that lie ahead.

Pallas Consultants routinely represent companies, boards of directors, special committees and individuals in wide-ranging types of investigations. In so doing, we seamlessly partner with outside and in-house counsel to conduct and develop a customized approach to each matter and bring deep knowledge in all facets of internal investigation practices, criminal and regulatory enforcement, securities laws, and fiduciary duty and corporate governance obligations.

We lead some of the most complex and high-profile internal investigations for clients from diverse industries, including technology, retail, consumer products, energy and natural resources, financial services, health care, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, telecommunications, and transportation. We quickly develop a strong understanding of our clients’ businesses and relevant facts and circumstances to outline the best approach. With a reputation for strong results and creative problem solving, our team handles virtually every type of white collar investigations.

When faced with handling sensitive allegations of potential misconduct, clients turn to us for thorough and efficient investigation and sound legal advice.

Our team has successfully traced and recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors and interested third parties who have been the subject of corporate fraud, including some of the largest Ponzi and securities fraud schemes in the world. Whether handling a small, focused investigation or managing complex interrelated allegations, we develop a targeted approach to each engagement. We take into consideration other potential ramifications, including public disclosures, the possibility of self-reporting to a regulator, crisis communications, and potential and actual parallel proceedings. Our procedures are rigorous enough to ensure meaningful, credible and complete results, but flexible enough to tailor our investigative approach to both the issues at hand and the needs of our clients.
