How Richard is building a better working world

I am fortunate to work with talented teams of outside counsel and forensic and technology professionals and to have the support of professionals from other EY practices. I aim to bring the right mix of forensic, regulatory, technology and sector experience to help our clients address their challenges in a timely manner.

Whether reacting to a government investigation or developing a leading technology compliance solution, I am passionate about empowering our teams, challenging them to be innovative and working with them to develop efficient and effective approaches to the critical issues our clients face.

Together with our clients’ outside counsel, we are building a better working world by investigating fraud and working with our clients to develop and bolster their compliance programs to limit their fraud exposure.
