Why We’re Different 

Many firms have experienced consultants that understand the mechanics of the problems faced by various sectors within financial and business communities. However, possessing the skills to not only understand the problem, but also to identify and creatively design and implement effective solution to the problem is not easily accomplished. This requires the experience of senior-level practice managers who have the in-field experience, intuition and understanding to make a difference. Because of this, we use only experienced senior people: We do not use interns, trainees, or recent MBAs. This has proven to be cost-effective for our clients, because the work gets done faster, and done right! 

FE&E, Inc. sees more cases involving international due diligence, financial fraud, money laundering, and related issues in a month than most firms see in a year. Because of this, FE&E, Inc. is particularly well equipped to help you address your needs beyond the scope of a simple investigation of the problem.
