New York – Leading global professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) continues the expansion of its Global Forensic and Dispute Services group with the addition of Robert Weiner. Mr. Weiner joins the firm’s Business Intelligence practice as a Senior Director in New York.
With more than 25 years of experience in the U.S. and abroad, Mr. Weiner specializes in conducting large-scale forensic due diligence and financial crime investigations for global businesses and law firms. He has provided support in litigation involving claims and defenses, asset identification, intellectual property theft, money laundering and gray and black market counterfeiting. Mr. Weiner’s expertise also includes experience in directing multi-country, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) third-party due diligence assignments, as well as conducting enhanced due diligence investigations for financial institutions.
“While anti-bribery laws in emerging market jurisdictions are starting to catch up, there is a greater need for multinational companies to examine risk very closely due to a higher propensity for bribery in some parts of the world,” said Ernest Brod, a Managing Director with Alvarez & Marsal Global Forensic and Dispute Services who leads the firm's Business Intelligence practice.
Prior to joining A&M, Mr. Weiner was Managing Director and Regional Counsel at IPSA International, Inc. where he led the firm's Anti-Bribery and Corruption practice and was responsible for policy and procedures reviews and conducting risk-based third-party investigative due diligence in conformity with the FCPA and the U.K. Bribery Act.
Mr. Weiner earned a bachelor’s degree with distinction from Pace University and a law degree from Pace University School of Law. He is member of the Association of Corporate Counsel, the International Association of Privacy Professionals, the Connecticut and New York State Bars and the International Bar Association.
