Their decades of global investigation experience and in-depth expertise augments A&M’s cross-border reach and ability to serve client needs in Latin America, Europe and Asia.
Mr. Cappellina will advise A&M’s clients in cross-border financial monitoring, including anti-corruption investigations and compliance services across the financial services, retail, healthcare and energy industries, as well as U.S. federal and state regulators.
Mr. Fogarty will help lead A&M’s Disputes and Investigations capabilities for Latin America, Central America and the Caribbean in conducting internal investigations, strategic intelligence analysis, investigative due diligence and anti-corruption and anti-money laundering engagements.
Mr. Cappellina is a forensic accountant with 30 years of experience. He has led U.S. and cross-border investigations and compliance projects and the development and implementation of investigative and anti-bribery and corruption-related methodologies. He has a track record of enhancing clients’ compliance programs and has assisted clients in the successful resolution of criminal and civil matters.
Mr. Fogarty brings over 20 years of investigative and legal experience. He has conducted investigations globally spanning regulatory compliance, complex fraud, asset searches, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, anti-money laundering, anti-terrorist financing, and supply chain and employee theft. He is fluent in Spanish.
“More than ever, multinational businesses need world-class forensic investigators and anti-fraud experts to help mitigate and resolve high-stakes situations, including anti-corruption, C-suite level fraud and the increasingly punitive actions of regulatory bodies,” said Bryan Ruez, Managing Director and Global Leader of A&M’s Disputes and Investigations. “We are pleased to have Dave and Rich join our global team. Their significant industry and cross-border expertise will help our clients meet the demands they face every day.”
