The National Law Journal: Navigating the Modern Corporate Investigation

Friday, December 13, 2019

Corporate investigations have been revolutionized over the past 40 years.

The corporate investigations practice of tomorrow will not only be tasked with collecting information, but also with critically sorting through massive amounts for the relevant kernels that clients need. Advances in technology allow investigators to sift through the “white noise” from corporate data sources more efficiently, in ways that simply weren’t possible in the past.

As we head into 2020, Mike Cherkasky and Roy Pollitt outline the seven key capabilities that a modern corporate investigations practice needs to offer, including:

  1. Interdisciplinary teams
  2. International reach
  3. Data analytics & machine learning
  4. Computer forensics
  5. Forensic accounting
  6. Investigative due diligence
  7. Traditional investigative techniques & surveillance
