FRA was initially instructed by a UK-listed mining company with interests in Africa, the CIS and Latin America, to carry out a review for compliance with the UK Bribery Act. When the company found itself under investigation by the UK Serious Fraud Office (SFO), our assignment expanded into a detailed review of transactions in a number of jurisdictions together with an extensive eDiscovery exercise.
This client engagement required FRA to address a number of different challenges. It involved the review of data in Kazakhstan that was protected by state secrecy constraints. We were able to leverage FRA team members with the appropriate language skills to help design the culling process in a way that was acceptable by state secrecy laws as well as the SFO. We also needed to ensure access was restricted to certain parties. In addition, a number of different law firms were involved, including some that were replaced. We successfully deployed our Mobile Discovery Solution while responding to a variety of law firms and a frequently changing strategy.
The project demonstrated FRA’s ability to work in challenging environments, leverage our understanding of local legal constraints and handle a variety of shifting targets and goals on a very large-scale matter involving great volumes of data.
