Increased regulation and a greater focus on compliance are the key factors behind a rise in investigations into areas such as fraud and other financial crime. Investigations and disputes require discretion and expertise as Listed Companies seek to limit financial and reputational damage. The key is the ability to undertake in-depth investigations, remaining sensitive to businesses' concerns around confidentiality and reputation.

Topic Outline:

Forensic research report on listed companies
Investigation methodologies and challenges
Regulatory enforcement actions against directors
Allegations from hostile stakeholders
Case studies of listed companies subject to forensic investigation
Practical tips
