David C. Burroughs, a Partner with StoneTurn, brings nearly 30 years of law enforcement, public and private sector experience in fraud and forensic investigations, compliance and risk management, and monitorships. A 25-year veteran of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), he has supervised investigations into a broad range of allegations, including white collar crime, gang violence, financial fraud, money laundering and racketeering.
A seasoned investigative strategist and tactician, David has managed scores of assignments involving alleged violations of state, federal and international law. He successfully brings discretion into the workplace, allowing for deep dive investigations to proceed without disrupting business-as-usual activity. He is exceptionally skilled in conducting interviews, developing evidence and supervising teams to conduct extensive compliance reviews. David’s decades-long experience working within the judicial system informs his ability to assist clients in developing case-ready materials for presentation to law enforcement, if required.
Prior to joining StoneTurn, David was Senior Managing Director at Lemire LLC, a firm specializing in compliance, risk and investigative matters. At Lemire, David supervised large-scale teams of forensic accountants, investigators and analysts for the firm’s pubic and private sector clients. He oversaw the monitorship team of a Swiss bank on behalf of the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) and is lead investigator and liaison for the federal monitorship of a 20,000-member construction union. His supervisory investigative expertise encompasses compliance reviews, including one case involving allegations related to organized crime involvement in the waste hauling industry on behalf of the New York City Business Integrity Commission. In the private sector, David has conducted numerous cyber and forensic accounting reviews on behalf of corporate clients that suffered significant financial losses.
Prior to working in the private sector, David served in several increasingly responsible investigative and management positions with the FBI. His career included a range of assignments culminating in his most recent position as Supervisory Special Agent in charge of the New York Special Operations Technical Squad. In that role, David managed and directed highly sensitive investigations in support of criminal and counterterrorist operations. Previously as a Special Agent, he served as the lead case agent on numerous complex investigations, including matters involving white collar crime, money laundering, violent crimes and financial fraud.
The FBI Federal Law Enforcement Foundation honored David by selecting him as a recipient of its Investigator of the Year award in 2010.
