Achieving trusted adviser status among our clients is no easy feat. To do so, we must provide consistent top-notch client service, excellent and accurate work product, and be memorable throughout each and every matter. I believe we excel at all of these things and this is the reason our clients consider StoneTurn to be a trusted adviser and continually reach out to us for assistance.
Q: StoneTurn is known for being collaborative. Describe for us how the firm is able to work so seamlessly with clients and as colleagues.
Our strong and tightknit culture, the way in which many of our service lines work together so seamlessly and the willingness of our team to involve others makes our collaborative efforts enjoyable. For example, our Forensic Technology group often provides computer forensic services in connection with various Forensic Accounting matters, bolstering our technical expertise when needed.
Q: Every day, StoneTurn professionals help clients untangle complex problems. Can you give us an example of a great client challenge you faced and how you successfully solved it?
The majority, if not all, of our matters begin with a complex issue. Clients turn to us to provide insight on or untangle the situation. We are often engaged by both in-house and external counsel to assist with matters involving theft of intellectual property or breach of contract. The lifecycle of these investigations typically begins with a simple allegation, moves into the identification of key documents and external device usage, and ultimately requires the destruction of documents on various systems. Our Forensic Technology team has a proven track record in all facets of these types of matters and has released many declarations detailing the results of our analyses every step of the way.
