Eight International has announced the launch of a global forensics and dispute resolution network. The move comes as the advisory organisation aims to support its forensic and dispute resolution specialists in delivering complex cross-border projects.

Boasting over 3,600 team members, including more than 160 partners across more than 30 jurisdictions, Eight International is a global advisory organisation specializing in transactions, restructuring and transformation. Since its founding in 2016, the consultancy has helped corporate clients, businesses, private equity funds and leading investment banks to navigate challenges across transactions, restructuring, transformation and litigation and dispute.

With this strong reputation for creating, preserving and recovering value across a range of complex situations and industries, the firm’s advisors regularly support board-level corporate clients on complicated cross-border projects. To help meet this demand more effectively, the organisation is launching an international network.

Speaking of the new service line, Pascal Raidron, President of Eight International, noted, “We launched Eight International few years ago because we wanted to meet the growing demand of investment funds and corporates for independent, dedicated financial and operational support in their international operations. Our job often goes beyond transactions, restructuring and transformation. We have developed a global customer-oriented philosophy that focuses on the client’s needs as the main driver of our services. Support that we provide, regardless of its kind, is always tailored to our clients’ unique business and goals.”

Dedicated to forensic and dispute resolution services, the network formalises the collaboration between Eight International members, which have in recent years been delivering cross jurisdictional projects together for their international clients. Eight International was born of a collaboration by six consultancies sharing the same values.

The scope of forensics and dispute resolution network includes, investigations services dedicated to clients who experience potential fraud, misconduct, bribery, corruption and other financial business risk issues. It also features dispute services supporting in-house and external legal counsel through every phase of litigation and arbitration; compliance and risk advisory; and forensic technology consulting.

Céline Leroy, Head of the Forensics & Dispute Resolution Network, added, “We deploy technology solutions to assist where appropriate which enables us to tackle assignments with high data volumes in a time and cost-effective manner. The network will allow us to create a continuous exchange between our experts and benefit from synergies by reuniting the longstanding expertise of Eight International members and correspondents on forensic and litigation projects in a wide variety of sectors.”
