What the team is known for

The Risk Advisory Group is an independently owned global risk consultancy, with a rapidly growing presence in Asia through its Hong Kong office. The firm regularly navigates corruption, low factual transparency and overlapping parliamentary and commercial interests in the region to provide its clients with clarity in arbitration or litigation. The Asia-Pacific team has a proven track record of assisting in corruption, money laundering and sanctions matters of late.

Strengths

"I've known Risk Advisory for a long time and we know their level of competency is generally high. One of the things, though, that stands out about them is their honest approach; they'll tell us when they can't do something or if there's someone they know who can do it better. Of course, most of the time they can do it very well themselves. The firm has very good reach in relation to their sources."

Work highlights

Risk Advisory was instructed by a global commodities trader to assist in an investigation into potential procurement fraud within its Indonesian operations. Risk Advisory discovered that two of the vendor companies only existed on paper, causing a re-evaluation between the client and its Indonesian operations.

Notable practitioners

Tim Stanley is a recent arrival to the firm's Hong Kong office and is a director in the region. He is a key contact.
