Services

We provide our advice with respect to financial crime compliance and fraud prevention through a consultancy model working on day rates or fixed costs.

An important factor that differentiates Arun being engaged as a consultant through Tenet as opposed to other non-legal financial crime compliance consultants is that Arun can ensure that legal advice privilege applies to the work undertaken ensuring confidentiality can be retained.

A good example of the risk of not retaining legal advice privilege would be in the event of compliance review work identifying failings in a client’s compliance programme and procedures.

Such findings would not be subject to disclosure of documents in subsequent litigation as they would be protected by legal advice privilege. Otherwise a report on the failings may become disclosable.

For investigations and recovery of losses we operate more in line with traditional litigation legal services charging by hourly rates but seeking to provide quotes for work for stages of a case and seeking to risk share if appropriate to do so. We seek to work with litigation funders and after the event insurers to apply innovative funding solutions for clients of all sizes.

Testimonials

  • The team at Tenet has been an inspiration to me for their ability to think outside the box and innovate when confronted with challenge. Arun is excellent at what he does, but he is always on the lookout for new ways for Tenet to address the problems his clients face. The way he manages his team means there is always someone able to pick up the phone or an email thread and reply promptly when time is of the essence. More impressively, Tenet come up with new – not to say disruptive – ways of solving their clients’ issues.
