Collusion and confidentiality breach

KordaMentha was retained to investigate a mining industry claim in excess of $5 million. We interviewed witnesses and suspects in relation to ​alleged collusion with suppliers and release of confidential information to the media. We also performed forensic imaging of computers and detailed analysis of electronic financial information and other material.

We submitted an expert report including quantification of loss. KordaMentha participated in the disciplinary hearings which led to the dismissal of the employees involved and cancellation of onerous contracts with the supplier.
