Independent monitors with local knowledge, industry understanding and competition experience.
Courts, regulators and government agencies often appoint independent integrity or compliance monitors to oversee the remediation of criminal, regulatory and compliance deficiencies at organizations that have been investigated or prosecuted. While monitorships have been predominantly a tool of the U.S. federal and state regulators, they are being adopted increasingly in jurisdictions globally.
Kroll professionals serve as independent monitors and provide multidisciplinary professional services in support of monitors. Our monitoring teams bring together local knowledge; industry understanding; expertise in financial accounting, enterprise risk management, compliance, internal audit and related disciplines; and experience working with criminal, regulatory and competition authorities worldwide. Our professionals have been involved in many of the most consequential, high-profile monitorships of the past 20 years.
Our experts ensure efficient implementation of remedies under the Department of Justice, Securities and Exchange Commission, Federal Trade Commission, European Commission or other governmental oversight. Our targeted reviews and independent testing provide assurance that criminal, regulatory or compliance deficiencies are addressed without unduly disrupting the monitored business.
