advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and

with the turmoil in world markets, the advent of Sarbanes Oxley and
the emphasis on transparency and objectivity, FTI Consulting has
had a great impact on world affairs in a variety of different
capacities. With more than 4,600 employees located in 29 countries,
FTI Consulting has grown to become a market-leading global
consulting firm by serving as a trusted advisor to its clients in
both good and bad times. From headline-grabbing engagements,

bankruptcy, the Bush vs. Gore dispute, the Major League Baseball
Steroid case, and many more, the firm has played a role in matters
that have shaped history.
