Our track Record
As an independent specialist firm, we are nimble, flexible and mobile and able to set up in any jurisdiction within days.
Arbitration involving Bribery and Corruption
FRA was engaged by an arbitration panel to act as an independent party, to identify any corruption red flags associated with royalty payments.
In December 2022, the Switzerland-based multinational technology company reached a “full and final settlement” of $327 million with several national authorities. A multi-disciplinary, international team of FRA specialists supported the company through their cooperation with the authorities over more than three years, from investigation to settlement to compliance remediation.
FRA was engaged by Petrofac and its external counsel to support the company’s plea discussions with the SFO, which had been investigating the company for several years in relation to bribery allegations contrary to the UK Bribery Act.
FRA advised Airbus and its counsel from the early stages in designing a robust and forensically based approach to the investigation, customising a data governance strategy alongside compliance risk assessment and remediation support, as well as the eventual fine calculation.
High Court Claim related to Oil & Gas Services Company
Our client was defending a multi-billion dollar High Court claim in relation to alleged breaches of a long-term logistics contract. FRA was engaged to provide expert witness support and evidence in relation to the calculation of potential damages associated with loss of profits.
International Arbitration Related to Commodity Trading
FRA was approached by the plaintiff in a $1.5bn claim in an international commercial arbitration to provide expert reports and witness testimony that proved in the arbitration finding for the plaintiff.
Expert Determination in an M&A Dispute
FRA was retained by a global chemicals company to represent them in post-closing purchase price adjustment dispute in connection with a $1.1 billion Stock and Asset Purchase Agreement. The submissions prepared and supported by FRA’s analysis resulted in a favorable determination for our client.
A European bank approached FRA to perform an initial evaluation of its exposure related to customers allegedly involved in money laundering activities. This was of concern to the client given the potential regulatory, financial and reputational implications for the bank.
Nordic Telecommunications Company
FRA was instructed by Telia Company (market cap: over $17 billion) and its counsel in the UK, US, the Nordics and Holland to provide forensic accounting and eDiscovery consulting services in the investigation of the Scandinavian telecoms company.
Expert Witness to the Quebec Superior Court
FRA provided pro-bono support to a Canadian individual who brought a case to the Quebec Superior Court to challenge the Canadian Criminal Code law that allows police officers to make traffic stops without suspecting any offence being committed.
Responding to a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR)
FRA supported a client's response to an ex-employee's Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) with a limited time period to respond. FRA applied a DSAR solution to gain a holistic view of more than 900,000 documents, eliminate redundancies; redact confidential information, and deliver a complete and structured response.
