Beth Junell is a Senior Managing Director in the Forensic & Litigation Consulting segment of FTI Consulting, and she is based in Hong Kong. Beth specialises in fraud risk management, investigations and compliance.
Beth is a forensic accountant who advises her clients and their advisors on responding to allegations of fraud and misconduct, including conducting investigations and remediating internal control gaps that allowed misconduct to occur and go undetected. She also advises clients on operationalising fraud risk management and compliance programs, in particular design and implementation of risk assessment methodologies and internal controls to mitigate fraud and corruption risk and maintain accurate books and records. She has significant experience in matters arising from alleged corporate accounting fraud and financial reporting irregularities, violations of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) and similar anti-corruption laws around the world, other employee malfeasance and white collar crime, and trade sanctions violations.
Beth has worked on behalf of special committees and their independent counsel, management in internal investigations, monitors or compliance consultants pursuant to settlement agreements, and as a shadow investigator on behalf of a Big 4 accounting firm’s audit practice. She has worked with companies in many industries, but most extensively in oil & gas; mining; engineering and construction; consumer and diversified industrial products; life, property and casualty and healthcare insurance; medical devices; telecommunications; and technology. She has presented findings and observations to boards, C-suite management, independent auditors and government regulators including the U.S. Department of Justice and Securities and Exchange Commission.
Beth specialises in complex fact analysis, developing case strategy and reshaping work plans to respond to challenging and unexpected developments as facts are uncovered and pieced together. She also specialises in large cross-border matters, often executing work streams simultaneously in multiple jurisdictions. She has conducted and managed engagements in over 30 countries, with personal on-the-ground experience in Algeria, Azerbaijan, Brazil, the People’s Republic of China, Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Scotland, South Africa, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.
