The Criminal Division of the DOJ retained Brattle to support an investigation revolving around an $8 billion digital currency money-laundering scheme. Brattle’s team assisted the DOJ in identifying evidence indicative of money laundering activities within the massive haystack of structured and unstructured data. By assembling, standardizing, and integrating data from different sources and leveraging sophisticated data analytics, Brattle’s team helped uncover anomalies and patterns indicative of illicit activity in one of the largest international money laundering prosecutions to date. The case ultimately resulted in multiple guilty pleas and a 20-year prison sentence for the founder of the target company.
