LONDON, March 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Control Risks, the global business risk consultancy, announces the appointment of Mavis Tan and Simon Blade as Senior Managing Directors in Control Risks' forensic investigations, compliance and insolvency practice in Hong Kong.
These appointments are in response to growing market demand for specialist knowledge in complex cases of fraud, financial disputes and corruption, including FCPA investigations and compliance audits.
Between them Mr Blade and Ms Tan have over 35 years' experience in forensic accounting, litigation support and insolvency. This includes giving expert testimony in a number of criminal and commercial matters involving corruption, fraud, asset-tracing and company valuations. Prior to joining Control Risks, they were both Senior Managing Directors in FTI Consulting's forensic and litigation consulting practice. They join a multi-skilled team of professionals with extensive experience of assisting multinationals and private clients with pre-transaction due-diligence and post-acquisition compliance issues, shareholder disputes and whistle-blower allegations.
The skills and experience of Mr Blade and Ms Tan augment Control Risks' substantial existing forensics and compliance teams in Shanghai, and e-discovery business in Hong Kong. Working with the firm's market-leading crisis management and business intelligence capabilities, this unique combination of skills supports C-suite executives in making critical decisions when faced with complex compliance and investigations issues.
"We are delighted to be part of the Control Risks' team," said Ms Tan. "The company's reputation for understanding the regulatory landscape affecting different industries and their track-record for successfully steering their clients through complicated corruption and compliance cases are second to none."
Stéphanie Lhomme, head of Control Risks' business intelligence practice in Europe and Africa, said:
"Control Risks has been helping UK-based multinationals with complex crisis consulting across Asia for many years. The expansion and reinvigoration provided by the addition of Mavis and Simon is not only exciting, but further evidence of our commitment to bringing top talent to bear for our clients worldwide."
"The developing regulatory situation in China is but one example of where our enhanced team will strengthen our ability to help our global clients effectively navigate this increasingly difficult environment. The collective experience of the Control Risks' team is now unmatched in the Asia market, and throughout the world."
