Tailor-Made Investigations

Nardello & Co. was founded on the belief that smart, experienced people produce intelligent and targeted results.

Founder Dan Nardello, a former federal prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office, noted that some investigative firms fell short when it came to responsiveness and creativity. So, in 2003, he resolved to bring together a team that could remedy this gap in the market.

With offices located globally, today Nardello & Co. employs a team of experienced professionals who work around the clock to handle a broad range of issues including corruption investigations, political risk assessment and computer forensics. It opened its Hong Kong office in 2012.

“Our competitive advantage is our multi-disciplinary team comprised of individuals such as former U.S. federal prosecutors, international lawyers and financial crime specialists,” said Nicholas Blank, Managing Director of the company’s Hong Kong office.

Nardello & Co.’s services are built on a few key principles. Acting ethically and legally is of paramount importance. And a thorough investigative plan is tailor-made for each client, as every client and every issue are unique, Blank said. “There are no short-cuts in investigations. In-depth analyses and robust investigations are the results of following best practices and using comprehensive research methodologies.”

Blank said that he had been “inspired by the can-do attitude and the determination of the business community.”

Since it expanded into Asia, the firm has taken steps to build a well-rounded team with regional expertise. As a result of this investment in manpower, its Hong Kong-based clients - who conduct business in jurisdictions including Vietnam, India and Korea – have seen increased investment activity as well as increased efforts to strengthen compliance programmes and weed out incidents of fraud and corruption.

“All of our investigations have a human element,” Blank said. “The thing which gets us out of bed in the morning is the belief that our investigations can make a difference – whether it’s identifying corruption or giving someone unfairly targeted by the media a fair hearing.”
