Intelligence Practice
Pre-Transaction Due Diligence

Institutional investors around the world turn to RosettiStarr to perform pre-transaction intelligence and deal due diligence services because we go deeper than anyone in the industry. Our reports are cross-functional tools used by investment principals and compliance professions to understand and shape the nature of the deal and satisfy regulatory and fiduciary burdens. The result is a lower risk profile and a deeper understanding of the people at the core of our clients’ investments.

RosettiStarr routinely identifies undisclosed issues that help our clients negotiate better deals or avoid them entirely. We operate with discretion, understand our client's goals and work closely with them when issues arise.

We generate hard facts to support our clients' investment hypotheses and help them gain influence in the market. From mergers and acquisitions and go-private events, to major open market transactions, our team routinely provides critical research behind high-profile business events.

Global Intelligence Support
Deep Public Records Research
Site Visits

A client had investments in an $8B+ multinational life sciences company. They suspected something wasn’t right with the company’s books, so they hired RosettiStarr to evaluate the leadership team and assess elements of the company’s operations.

Our researchers uncovered:

  • Unreported spousal relationship between the CEO and a board member.
  • Mismatching revenue reporting between publicly reported results by parent and the actual results of their operating subsidiaries (likely accounting fraud.)
  • The CEO was using the same firm to audit corporate subsidiaries as well as his own personal real estate holding companies (whose assets he was leasing back to the company.)

We then conducted site visits to 100 of the company’s operating sites in 19 countries on 4 continents and found that dozens of the company’s purported operating locations had limited or no business operations at all.

RosettiStarr’s intellectual property practice is relied on by multi-billion dollar public companies and global law firms.

Evidence Collection & Analysis
Witness Interviews
Digital Forensics

Our client had suspected for years their largest competitor was stealing their intellectual property but didn’t know how to prove it. Our team of investigators and research specialists developed an investigation and quickly discovered that the competitor had outsourcing offices in several cities in Asia. After researching these companies and their capabilities we determined this is likely where they were stealing our client’s IP.

Our team interviewed dozens of former employees onsite in India and the Philippines, revealing not only that they were indeed being instructed to steal our client’s IP, but exactly how they were doing it.

From there, we worked with international law enforcement agencies and our client’s outside counsel to bring the case to litigation. We were able to find thousands of examples of IP theft leading to a successful lawsuit which not only put our client’s biggest competitor completely out of business but also uncovered evidence of human trafficking that was later used by the FBI and DOJ to shut down the largest human trafficking portal on the internet.

Security Modernization

With the backing of a consortium of investors, our client began acquiring independent community banks in several southeastern states.  The acquired assets ranged from new retail banks with the latest security technology to old, dated buildings that lacked the infrastructure to support modern security systems.

RosettiStarr was asked to develop and apply enterprise-wide security and safety standards to ensure all facilities complied with applicable federal and state laws, and to reduce the time required to bring new locations online.

Our team quickly completed risk assessments and inventories of existing security and IT infrastructures for each location.  From there, we mapped the most glaring security gaps and developed a triaged plan to address the deficiencies.  We worked closely with the client’s banking operations, IT and corporate real estate teams to find solutions that met security requirements and provided additional operational benefits saving the client both time and money.
