When an allegation of misappropriation in the CIS arose following the dissolution of a large and complex joint venture, FTI Consulting’s forensic accounting experts were best placed to trace the funds and provide expert evidence in Court.
FTI Consulting has a long established track record of helping clients in Russia and the CIS unravel complex transactions and recover assets. When it was alleged that almost USD 100 million had been misappropriated and applied in a variety of ways, our client knew they needed the support of a specialist team to uncover the facts.
FTI Consulting’s expert witness, Ian Thompson, gave oral evidence at the trial, and was described by the judge as having given “extraordinarily careful attention to the matter”. Both the judge and opposing counsel, a top-ranked silk, accepted a key part of his evidence.
