Corporate counsel, compliance professionals and internal audit teams face ever-increasing expectations. Regulatory scrutiny is on the rise. There is significant pressure to cut costs. The threat of reputational damage continues to increase. Severely limited resources are available to navigate compliance issues.
StoneTurn brings a team of multi-faceted experts in disciplines such as accounting, audit, compliance, data analytics, forensic investigations, and risks and controls to help organizations navigate pre- and post-incident compliance matters and antifraud activities.
Our experts prevent and detect misconduct in the absence of an allegation or suspicion. We combine the mindset, knowledge, skills and experience of financial investigators with classic audit approaches and procedures to identify and assess risks, and prevent and detect violations of processes and controls, contracts and other third-party agreements, laws and regulations. Additionally, we leverage the power of big data to execute and measure the effectiveness of ethics and compliance programs.
We also serve as a court- and government-appointed independent monitor to assess remediation efforts. Turn to us in these high-stakes situations for subject matter and industry expertise, objectivity and proven track record of results as a trusted adviser.

The Five Rs: Recover, Repair, Restore, Rescue, Rehabilitate
Remediation—or understanding how and why a problem occurred, what should be done to fix it and ensure it does not recur—is essential whenever an organization substantiates allegations of significant violations of law, contract or internal policies, processes or controls. StoneTurn’s Compliance & Monitoring experts help organizations to avoid criminal, civil and regulatory enforcement action; mitigate fines, disgorgement penalties and administrative disciplinary measures; obviate the need for government-imposed compliance monitors; rehabilitate injured relationships and regain trust; recoup losses; and protect the company’s reputation and those of members of the board and management.
StoneTurn serves as a self- and government-imposed independent monitor following settlements with regulators. We also help companies and counsel to prepare for and interface with government-appointed compliance monitors; serve as a forensic adviser to monitors and maintain a dedicated focus on assessing and implementing compliance aspects of remediation programs; and select, assemble and embed industry-focused operational experts into the forensic advisory team.
