Jonathan Marks has joined Chicago-based Baker Tilly Virchow Krause (FY18 net revenue of $578.4 million) as a partner in the firm’s specialized forensic litigation valuation services consulting practice.
Marks specializes in internal and regulatory investigations; governance matters; assessment, design and implementation of compliance programs; global fraud risk management; and compliance coordination and monitoring services for the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.
He has led high-profile financial, accounting, compliance and due diligence investigations around the world relating to allegations of accounting irregularities, improper financial disclosures, fraud, non-compliance, corruption, bribery and data breaches. Marks has provided expert testimony on accounting, financial and internal control issues in commercial litigation matters.
“His depth of expertise in forensic investigations and anti-fraud matters as well as his diverse experience helping clients and their boards improve their governance structure will add tremendous value for our clients as we continue to grow our practice,” says Jack Williams, Baker Tilly’s leader of the forensic valuation services team.
“The regulatory environment has changed,” Marks said. “The SEC, DOJ and other enforcement agencies are demanding more and we must answer the call. Investigating is only part of what is expected. Today, we need to be able to assess risk, conduct root cause analysis, design and enhance internal controls, evaluate the effectiveness of internal audit and compliance and appraise the governance framework.”
