He has two decades of experience conducting sophisticated fact-finding and intelligence-collection investigations for government agencies, law firms, multinational corporations, investment funds, and nonprofit organizations.
Chris helps clients uncover hidden insights that enable smarter, more effective decision-making in the context of investments and transactions, high-stakes disputes, and internal or external threats. He has expertise in strategic intelligence collection and analysis, complex litigation support, fraud and corruption investigations, multi-jurisdictional due diligence, and technology-enabled research that includes threat monitoring and mitigation.
Chris has led engagements on six continents, serving clients across a wide range of industries, including entertainment, media and technology, retail, food and beverage, manufacturing, healthcare, financial services, and education.
- On behalf of a prominent institution whose employees were being targeted by a virulent online harassment and threat campaign, Chris led a multi-month engagement providing risk advisory services including online threat monitoring, attribution research into anonymous threat actors, outreach to social media platforms hosting threating content, preparation of materials for law enforcement referral, and online privacy screening for impacted employees. Under Chris’ supervision, investigators monitored threat streams across a range of social media platforms and deep web and dark web forums, identified and assessed hundreds of potential threat actors, and tracked evolving physical security concerns and false narratives related to the client. Chris worked with the client’s senior leadership and external counsel to assess and mitigate threats and provide briefings to government agencies in support of their response.
- Chris managed a sprawling, multi-jurisdictional investigation focused on several individuals who were making spurious claims against a senior executive. Detailed public records and media research in several countries and languages identified the subjects, mapped their network of contacts and prior business endeavors, and exposed connections to potential fraudulent behavior and previous campaigns targeting other prominent individuals, providing counsel context in support of advising the client on a prospective response.
