Representative matters
  • Led comprehensive investigations into more than a dozen senior executives of a would-be acquiror as well as the directors in its proposed slate when Nardello & Co. was engaged by a well-known hospitality company facing a hostile takeover. Using skills developed over more than a decade of public record investigative experience, she directed her team’s use of a variety of open source tools and specialized databases to find omissions and inconsistencies in the subjects’ business activities, undisclosed potential conflicts of interest, significant litigation and regulatory matters, and potentially embarrassing social media activity.
  • Oversaw an extensive investigation spanning the US, Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean when Nardello & Co. was engaged by counsel for an oil and gas company employee accused of making corrupt payments to foreign officials. The investigation, which included public record research, surveillance, confidential source inquiries and interviews in English and Spanish, required experience in and understanding of the public record landscape in multiple jurisdictions, as well as knowledge of the conditions on the ground.
  • Played a critical role when Nardello & Co. was retained to investigate claims made against executives in an anonymous letter sent to the board of directors of Grupo Televisa SAB. As a public company, Grupo Televisa disclosed in a regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission the results of the investigation as well as Nardello & Co.’s role in it.
  • Supervised and led complex pre-acquisition due diligence investigations with an anti-corruption focus in the oil and gas industry in Argentina and Brazil. The assignment required in-depth research into dozens of entities and individuals.
  • Managed several sensitive investigations in Guatemala, including a litigation support matter and a know-your-customer background investigation in which political connections were of particular concern.
  • Supervised open-source research for multiple complex white-collar criminal litigation support matters in the US.
