Dentons Global Advisors has established an intelligence practice that combines its issues management, crisis, geopolitical risk and transaction advisory services with strategic analytical and data capabilities.

The offering is designed to provide the visibility needed to demystify complex business situations in order to make rapid and precise decisions during high-risk moments of opportunity, risk and change, according to DGA.

“This capability is an essential tool for executives facing their toughest decisions, and we offer it on an integrated basis,” said Ed Reilly, DGA CEO. “The quality of the data underpinning our strategic advice has been greatly enhanced with the addition of our global intelligence offering.”

Specialty areas of the new group include strategic advisory (reputations risk assessments, special situations), compliance & investigations, disputes (asset tracing, cross-border arbitration, situational awareness), ESG & supply chain (“Know Your Customer investigations”) and financial services (shareholder activism, M&A support).

Michael Auerbach, who was SVP at Albright Stonebridge Group, which became part of DGA in 2021, heads the intelligence offering.
