He has an unrelenting focus on building talented, diverse teams. His clients operate across borders, cultures and communities. He builds teams that reflect this diversity and understand the unique fraud, bribery and compliance challenges.
Battling corporate fraud, bribery and complex compliance issues routinely takes Dean deep into Africa, across Asia and throughout Latin America. Working across cultures and countries has taught Dean that preventative controls don’t travel well. His work is guided by his long-held belief that unless there is an understanding of the cultural context and how business is done on the ground in different markets, companies will always be vulnerable.
Dean's diverse forensic experience includes assisting to de-risk the acquisition of mining tenements in Africa, responding to Foreign Corrupt Practices Act allegations for life sciences' companies as well as helping some of the world’s largest banks coordinate their foreign bribery compliance frameworks. He has also worked with many multinationals addressing anti-trust and anti-competition issues.
