Support in countering scientific and legal misconduct
We provide assistance in the handling of fraud and misconduct involving the areas of science, law, and their intersection:
scientific research misconduct claims, institutional and agency investigations, qui tam cases, and due process violations (primarily those involving presentation of evidence) from the perspective of fraud investigation, databasing, and publication.
WHAT WE DO...
QuestionWe can ask questions on your behalf in “real-time”, crisis situations.
OptimizeWe can help optimize presentation and preservation of your evidence for filings and publication.
SupportWe support investigation and litigation (depending on case specifics).
AssistWe have had several successful experiences with vocational assistance for those who have suffered career harms as a result of speaking up (whistleblowers/tampered witnesses).
ConsultWe have also been of assistance in cases involving failed or absent government oversight, as well as having written and consulted on government agency improvement.
AdvocateWe advocate for legislation that we believe will positively impact oversight of government programs and agencies, reduce fraud, waste, and abuse in research grant funding, and enhance the productivity and number of meritorious scientists.
NEW: Evidentiary Audit and The Vetting Project
Beginning in May 2022, we are rolling out a project that we believe should address a great need among the many people we have dealt with in prior years, including not only whistleblowers, but also litigants in the U.S., U.K. and beyond.
We call it The Vetting Project. It is based on our core work in evidentiary audit.
Many aggrieved whistleblowers, litigants, and others who have been involved in various forms of adjudication, feel cheated because the process ignored, or otherwise mishandled, the evidence they presented. In addition, judgments were frequently made upon insufficient evidence or against the evidence.
Upon suffering what they believe be serious injustice, the aggrieved often try to get redress by complaining online. However, claims by aggrieved persons are themselves sometimes unsupported by evidence, or if linked to evidence, it is too much material to expect most casual readers to examine.
Therefore, there is a need to have some third party attempt to certify the credibility of the claims of aggrieved parties. There is essentially no independent audit of the U.S. legal system, and legal misconduct claims to that system are almost entirely unsuccessful.
To try to remedy this situation, we work with aggrieved parties to assemble and review the evidence in their cases. We will then attempt to produce a report summarizing findings about various evidentiary points. Finally, we will, if appropriate, issue a brief statement and/or rating as to what we believe about the merits of points within the case and whether we believe further review or other action would be warranted.
