Who's Who Legal Investigations: Forensic Accountants

Steve is a former US federal prosecutor with over 16 years of experience investigating alleged political corruption, money laundering, bank and wire fraud and other criminal activity. Steve’s experience stems from his time as a federal prosecutor with the United States Department of Justice’s criminal division, fraud section and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) unit (2010–2014); as an assistant United States attorney (2006–2010); in the compliance department of a Fortune 30 company; in private law practice at a multinational law firm and at EY. While at DOJ, Steve conducted grand jury investigations, recruited and oversaw cooperating witnesses, and ultimately resolved or charged numerous matters.  Steve resolved a substantial number of corporate cases, including determining net benefit and calculating fines under the US Sentencing Guidelines.  Steve also trained prosecutors and law enforcement from the United States and abroad.

Steve has investigated business conducted in over 45 countries, including allegations relating to alleged violations of laws governing transnational bribery and corruption (including the FCPA and UK Bribery Act), money laundering, revenue recognition, false claims, antitrust, the sale of securities, and mail and wire fraud.  Steve’s experience spans a substantial number of industries, such as financial services, technology and aviation, natural resource exploitation, including oil and gas, iron mining and drilling services, health, life sciences and medical device manufacturing, and government and defense contracting.

Steve regularly appears before DOJ and SEC on behalf of clients currently under investigation.

WWL says: Steve Spiegelhalter "has developed a fantastic practice" report sources, who add, "As a former prosecutor, he bridges the divide between knowing what lawyers need while being able to manage the expert's side."
