Drawing upon our combined wealth of skills, experience, and knowledge we help companies and their counsel successfully navigate investigations, disputes and litigations, as well their associated challenges.
Addressing Needs and Challenges
Our trusted advisors are recognized authorities in their areas of expertise, many with more than three decades of experience working inside enterprises similar to our clients. They’ve sat in their seats and have known what it’s like to address these kinds of concerns from inside an organization. We use that experience to work collaboratively with our clients and their attorneys to develop and execute efficient and effective strategies that help to foster successful outcomes. In addition, we:
- We communicate frequently and transparently about goals and methods to ensure everyone understands what’s expected of them.
- We measure and monitor progress regularly and offer updates that let clients and their attorneys change course and redirect resources when necessary or appropriate.
- We regularly work to streamline our operations for greater efficiencies that can improve effectiveness, reduce costs, and so much more.
“Granite GRC’s professionals have held in-house, senior level positions in key areas such as finance and operations, healthcare services, law, risk management and regulatory and commercial compliance. Many are also nationally or internationally recognized public speakers or authors, as well as experienced expert witnesses. Together this team provides our clients with strong skills and advantages in any investigations or disputes, and any resulting litigation.”

Increasing numbers of organizations are negotiating settlement agreements with government authorities, including Consent Decrees, Deferred Prosecution Agreements and Corporate Integrity Agreements. Many of these agreements require the services of an Internal Review Organization (IRO) to fulfill activities as outlined in the agreements. Granite GRC’s professionals have negotiated and lead companies and functions operating under these agreements, as well as performed as IRO for many other companies. Whether assisting companies to comply with these agreements, or operating as an internal review organization, we facilitate implementation and execution while working to reduce disruption to companies’ daily operations.
