Pallas Consultants


Inquires and More



It is essential that every business does everything in its power to avoid problems—and to take the correct action should problems occur. Whether the steps taken are prospective or reactive, the most priceless commodity is objective information that offers managers a comprehensive view of workplace events or of the character and employment history of job applicants. Pallas Consultants has the know-how and experience to gather this information discreetly and ethically and to deliver it to the decision makers.

From fraud, bribery and corruption to leaks of information and sexual misconduct, allegations of workplace misconduct can have a severe impact on all parties involved, often resulting in exposure to legal, regulatory and reputational risk. When allegations of misconduct arise, organizations need a swift, thorough and fair response. Pallas Consultants team of experts has extensive experience investigating workplace misconduct. We are especially mindful of the unique sensitivities and concerns when conducting these kinds of investigations and can provide expert fact-finding to help clients determine what happened, how it occurred and who was responsible.

Our investigations combine advanced technologies with a global network of experts including former prosecutors, law enforcement and regulatory officials, forensic accountants, investigative journalists, compliance professionals and cybersecurity professionals. This blend of expertise, experience and technology allows us to examine workplace misconduct comprehensively and efficiently, whether it involves a data breach, surreptitious financial transactions or electronic communication trails. Our interviewing skills and ability to make discreet inquiries allows us to dig beneath the surface and provide clients with clarity and reliable facts.

The legal, financial, and reputational consequences of workplace misconduct and harassment have never been more far-reaching. We help clients determine what happened, how it occurred and who was responsible.
