How we can help

Some of our recent work 

  • A company exiting Russia was conscious of the Russian government's lack of flexibility on the approval of foreign companies' divestments. Control Risks provided detailed intelligence into the ownership, control, and reputational profile of the Russian buyer before making a final decision.
  • An FMCG organisation was facing allegations of conflict of interest, tax fraud, and false invoicing. Gathering data from electronic devices and email servers, our forensic experts used focused keyword searches to help the organisation and their legal counsel make regulatory disclosures, prepare a legal strategy and support labour law against the perpetrators.
  • A global media and advertising company was facing bribery and corruption allegations and reports of sexual misconduct. To assist the company’s external counsel, Control Risks deployed a multi-disciplinary forensic team whose findings supported regulatory proceedings.
  • A major international sports organisation required annual reviews of funding distribution. Our experts coordinated local substantive testing, compliance checks and interviews with management to provide a data-based action plan with recommendations to the client based on the issues and associated risks identified for each member country.
  • A large multinational came to Control Risks to conduct audits of their vendors and suppliers. Our experts used a mix of data analytics, interviewing, document reviews and audit sample testing procedures to identify risks to the business and provide consistent assessments of the compliance performance of the client's third parties.
  • A multinational chemical manufacturing company needed support responding to a dawn raid by the Competition Marks Authority. Control Risks worked with the company’s external counsel to rapidly analyse over 100 devices, provide guidance to legal teams, and ensure a proportionate approach.
