Potential challenges

The investigation of fraud, corruption and other economic crime or financial irregularities, particularly where the integrity of senior management has been called into question, requires a thorough, professional and independent approach. You, your stakeholders and possibly regulators will require the reassurance of an effective response, should an issue arise that poses regulatory, financial or reputational risk.

When disputes arise, we work with you and your legal counsel throughout the process and provide advice on the financial, commercial and practical issues at stake.

Where you need specialist assistance, we can draw on the support of investigators and industry experts in the PwC global network. The PwC forensic technology solutions team helps clients manage vast amounts of electronic data and navigate the legal and business processes that are mandated by critical events, including disputes, fraud or cyber breaches, regulatory investigations or data subject access requests. They offer a comprehensive range of electronic investigation services that include information governance, data collection, evidence assessment and document review. This end-to-end solution enables you to respond effectively to legal or regulatory incidents and crises.
