New York, NY (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
Ernst & Young LLP today announced a number of new hires, promotions and leadership changes in its Fraud Investigation & Dispute Services (FIDS) practice. The firm’s investment in this area reflects significant growth in demand from clients and their external legal counsel, particularly in financial services, life sciences and the public sector.
“With regulatory enforcement at historic levels, and clients adopting more robust measures to proactively address fraud, bribery and corruption risk, we continue to make strategic investments in our people,” said Brian Loughman, FIDS Leader for Ernst & Young LLP. “Given that our clients are increasingly operating in higher risk, rapid growth markets, they are looking for practical insights that reflect on-the-ground experience. Our professionals are particularly adept at helping companies navigate these challenging markets, working closely with the global Ernst & Young FIDS network in some 60 countries.”
Partner SanDee Priser has rejoined the US firm, to be based in New Jersey, after more than three years in Germany and Russia leading investigative and technology teams.
Additionally, Chris Costa returns to New York after four years in the UK where he will continue to serve the global organization while helping further strengthen the US firm’s practice.
Matt Jadacki has joined as an executive director in the firm’s Washington, DC office to build out a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) claims practice that will complement the FIDS Insurance Claims Services’ existing offerings.
Beth Junell has joined as a partner in the firm’s Dallas, TX office to expand its fraud and investigations practice. She has 20 years’ experience advising clients in major investigations and related remediation and compliance efforts, as well as work on high-profile monitorships and compliance matters.
