I serve as a consulting and testifying expert in litigation, forensic accounting and compliance matters and bring more than 17 years of experience. I calculate economic damages in disputes litigated in arbitration and State and Federal Courts and bring expertise in several causes of action including breach of contract, patent and trademark infringement, business interruption, and trade secret misappropriation, among others.
Throughout my career, I served clients and led teams on engagements involving forensic accounting investigations, assessment of risk management and compliance programs, data integrity compliance issues, and quantification of damages. I serve as a damages quantification expert and have specific experience in personal injury (including calculating the present value of life care plan costs) and wrongful death matters. I have been designated as an expert in 15 matters and have testified at deposition and trial.
I am adept at analyzing large sets of data to solve complex problems for clients. I excel at extracting insights from data. I am excited about the prospect of creating a usable product that works and can provide value to your firm. During my career, I gained extensive experience in making sense of various companies' Excel spreadsheets. I was viewed as an expert by clients, colleagues, and my superiors at extracting insights from spreadsheets provided through subpoenas and litigation discovery.
Most recently, I led teams that supported a Department of Justice (DOJ)-appointed Independent Compliance and Business Ethics Monitor of a global investment bank, and a Forensic Adviser to the DOJ / National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)-appointed Monitor of a Tier One automotive parts supplier.
I performed analyses of the lab and traceability systems at testing and production facilities of a global Tier 1 automotive supplier to assess the company's data integrity controls and implementation of DOJ plea agreement terms while working with the Forensic Advisor to the DOJ- and NHTSA-appointed Independent Compliance Monitor. In this role, I received large spreadsheets with lab testing and manufacturing data from facilities in 17 countries and had to "audit" the data to ensure that the company was capturing complete and correct information - this required me to identify outliers, missing values, and general data inconsistencies.
I led teams in 30 global facilities across 12 countries to monitor a Tier One automotive parts supplier's testing operations for compliance with internal and DOJ-mandated data integrity requirements.
I also served as a guest lecturer at Baruch College, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and Molloy College on topics related to data analytics tools and fraud detection.
I have engagement experience in the following industries: Automotive Manufacturing, Banking (Monitorship), Banking (Forensic Investigation), Telecommunications, Retirement Plans, Food & Fast Food, Private Equity, Pet Products, Mortgage Loan Servicing, Health Foods, Insurance, Real Estate, Fishing, Healthcare, Media/Entertainment, Financial Products (Bonds & Mutual Funds), Hospitality, Cosmetics, Packaging, Luxury Goods, Financial Products (Options & Derivatives), Defense Contracting, Technology, Construction, Building Materials, and Retail.
