Accuracy – Expanding | Innovating

Accuracy is proud to be expanding its forensics capabilities, adding highly experienced new advisors to its investigations practice and developing new document analytics tools to quickly identify evidence or areas of concern. Accuracy’s forensic investigations team uses its experience, financial acumen, and technology-based solutions to help its clients identify and investigate risks associated with fraud, corruption, sanctions violations and competition issues, among many more.

New additions to the team

Morgan Heavener has recently joined Accuracy as a partner based in the Paris office. Prior to joining Accuracy, he worked as a US investigations attorney, leading numerous complex cross‐border investigations, with a particular focus on the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Morgan has represented large international corporations in enforcement actions brought by the US Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the UK’s Serious Fraud Office, among others. He also has experience developing anti-corruption compliance programmes for multinationals across a variety of industries, including energy, technology and finance.

Roberto Maluf is another new addition to Accuracy’s Paris office, enhancing the firm’s corporate intelligence capabilities. Roberto and his team provide background information on entities and individuals for pre-transactional or third-party due diligence purposes and litigation support, as well as for support in forensic investigations into corporate impropriety or financial crime.

Accuracy’s growing investigations practice anticipates further senior hires in Dubai, Hong Kong and Germany in the coming months.

Accuracy Forensic View

In addition to expanding its investigations team, Accuracy is developing innovative tools to assist in all types of investigations.

Our strong cyber and forensic investigations teams are able to make use of our customised review platform to complement their expertise. For example, the Accuracy Forensic View (AFV) review platform can be used to greatly accelerate document reviews, including by examining what has been recently deleted or encrypted.

Does an allegation warrant an investigation? Where should you start? Are bad actors destroying evidence? What document review search will ever find evidence that has been hidden deliberately?

The AFV turns these challenges into advantages. The review tool is based on digital detective investigation techniques developed over many years, focusing on what bad actors are hiding. Electronic discovery collection images identify those actors’ efforts to hide documents, allowing investigators to focus on who has something to hide and what it is. The AFV can jump-start the investigation and discover the hidden truth. When combined with Relativity’s power, the AFV gives investigators and reviewers the best of both worlds.

Rick Barker, a partner in our Milan office, will be presenting on the benefits of this approach at the RelativityFest event in Chicago.
