NEW YORK, NY May 12, 2015 BDO Consulting, one of the nation’s leading professional services organizations, today announced the appointment of Nina Gross as Global Forensics Practice Leader in the firm's Washington, D.C. office. Ms. Gross is a well-respected advisor to organizations and their counsel, having 30 years of forensic accounting, investigation and consulting experience in global investigative matters, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). To further serve our clients’ domestic and cross-border needs, Ms. Gross is expanding BDO’s Global Forensics practice in D.C., which provides investigation, anti-corruption compliance, anti-fraud training, due diligence and forensic technology services.
 
“The SEC and DOJ’s continued focus on FCPA enforcement and the growing prominence of foreign anti-corruption laws are a major source of concern for our multinational clients,” said Carl W. Pergola, Executive Director of BDO Consulting. “Nina’s wide range of global investigative experience, including implementing compliance programs and advising on fraud prevention measures, makes her a valuable addition to the practice.”
 
“Understanding the corruption and bribery risks related to international business practices, Nina’s experience involving the cultural, linguistic and privacy considerations common to many cross-border matters are essential for meeting the complex needs of our clients,” said Glenn Pomerantz, Partner and Global Forensics practice leader.
 
“I was drawn to BDO’s reputation for being a nimble accounting and consulting organization with global reach,” said Ms. Gross. “Understanding that middle market companies endeavoring to grow internationally are particularly vulnerable to corruption risks, I am very pleased to be part of a firm where I can help my clients successfully navigate  the current regulatory environment.”
 
Prior to joining BDO, Ms. Gross held leadership roles at Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP, leading the firm’s FCPA Consulting Services practice in Washington, D.C. and establishing its Global Anti-Corruption Training Academy, which provided training to boards of directors, executives and officers on international corruption and fraud risk mitigation. She also served as Director of the Office of Legislative Affairs under Chairmen David Ruder and Richard Breeden at the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission. Ms. Gross earned her Bachelor of Arts from George Washington University and Juris Doctor from George Mason University Law School.
