Litigation Consulting

Our consultants include hedge fund, audit, and forensic accounting specialists that work closely with the SEC and the United States Department of Justice to protect investors from losses.

Our consultants advise on civil and criminal actions as well as asset tracing and recovery. We can quickly assess fraudulent hedge funds and can support litigation related to the SEC, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service and/or the DOJ.

 

Pre-Trial Consulting

LOFFCO works with attorneys to develop strong cases based on quantitative and financial analysis that supports the plaintiff’s claims. We provide reports, analysis, and intelligence to provide for strong case settlements.

The process begins with a conference call with all parties to evaluate the specifics of the case. If the case is deemed viable, an in-person meeting is scheduled to go through the facts of the case. We work with the lawyers throughout the filing and legal process to provide documentation, analysis, clarifications, and to speak with authorities.

Our consultants are available (phone and in-person) throughout the lifecycle of the case. We specialize in topics related to private credit funds, private real investments, insurance schemes, private equity and trade finance.

 

Expert Witness 

Our experts can testify on behalf of attorneys and investors on topics related to asset management, equity and bond investment strategies, complex financial schemes and forensic accounting. We also have special expertise into private investments and real assets.

With a deep background in global capital markets, fraud examination, and hedge fund management, we are uniquely positioned to support your plaintiff. We work globally and have supported efforts in the US, Latin America, Africa, Europe and Asia.

 

Post-Trial and Recovery Consulting

LOFFCO supports stakeholders and government bodies during the bankruptcy and recovery process. We help to locate assets located offshore and domestically, and we can also identify related parties and entities to include in potential judgments.

Our consultants include a former director of credit and underwriting at a Manhattan-based commercial lender who ultimately blew the whistle on fraud occurring at that entity. This has led to successful investigations by the SEC and the United States Department of Justice (“DOJ”) protecting investors from losses.

We have other consultants that have identified fraudulent hedge funds, including seven that have resulted in the filing of a civil action by the SEC, two of which concern suspected multi-billion-dollar frauds that are currently being investigated by the SEC, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service and/or the DOJ.

With significant experience in the early detection of risks in direct lending portfolios, our firm is uniquely positioned to review and analyze your private fixed income managers. Extensive UCC checks, returns comparisons, quantitative analysis, and through background investigations have led to highly valuable risk mitigation for our clients.
