Disputes & Investigations Practice

In the current economic climate, there have been an unprecedented number of business failures, financial frauds and accounting irregularities. These and other events have resulted in regulatory interventions, investigations, financial restatements and a significant number of lawsuits. Dealing with matters of a complex nature requires a broad range of skills and experience.

The Disputes & Investigations Practice at Alvarez & Marsal comprise Forensic Accounting and Investigations, Dispute Advisory, and Forensic Technology Services.

A&M's Forensic Technology team comprises senior forensic and information security technologists, who bring deep expertise in Computer Science and Information Systems, and offer a hands-on approach to collecting, preserving and analysing electronic information.

Forensic Technology Services Include:

  • Computer Forensics Investigations;
  • Electronic Disclosure Management;
  • Data Mining and Database Analytics;
  • Information Governance ; and
  • Cyber Security.

In today's digital age, an increasing number of files and communications are stored on computer hard drives or sent through e-mail, thus giving forensic technologists the responsibility of gathering, preserving and presenting evidence for trial in an extremely cost effective and efficient way. In litigation (and other related) cases, the processes used to gather, preserve, analyse and present electronic evidence can make or break your case.

Against this backdrop of unprecedented growth, an opportunity exists for us to grow the Forensic Technology Services team with the recruitment of a Regional Infrastructure Specialist.
