Peter’s recent projects include:
- For a financial services client underwriting a deal in Latin America, investigative due diligence revealed few issues in public records, but in-depth source inquiries identified significant reputational issues and allegations of corruption involving numerous key subjects, widespread among both regulatory agencies and business partners.
- When competitors claimed personal attribution for key investments at a major financial institution client, Peter conducted a global independent assessment regarding the portfolio of investments to determine the actual and appropriate attribution of the key individuals who worked on various aspects of each investment, including the sourcing of the investment opportunities, management of the assets, board assignments and exit work.
- Assisting an entertainment company that discovered internal fraud issues, Peter led an investigation, including computer forensics, to learn the extent of the fraud as well as supported litigation of the involved senior executives.
