HONG KONG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Clutch Group, an organization dedicated to helping companies tackle complex legal, risk and compliance issues, announced today the opening of its office in Hong Kong, significantly expanding the scope and reach of its services in the APAC region.

Clutch Group’s Hong Kong office, located in The Center building near Victoria Harbour, will offer end-to-end litigation, investigation, and compliance solutions, helping clients meet eDiscovery, managed review, and regulatory needs in the region. Clutch’s presence in Hong Kong will more easily facilitate compliance with Asian data security requirements, streamline offerings for clients with APAC offices, and will help support Clutch’s engagements currently underway in Singapore and Mainland China.

“To successfully address issues as demanding and complex as corruption and fraud, you need to take a holistic approach by combining technology with a deep understanding of risk,” says Aman. “Clutch Group’s unique approach and model has the potential to significantly disrupt the way companies tackle compliance, litigation, and investigation issues, and I am looking forward to helping drive this disruption.”

As Senior Director, Aman will lead Clutch’s Hong Kong office and help drive the company’s expansion strategy in the APAC region. With his deep expertise in anti-fraud and corruption strategy, Aman will serve as the subject matter expert for clients looking to bolster their controls and systems, comply with global regulations, and identify internal and external risks.

“Companies with a global presence face enormous challenges in meeting a plethora of regulatory demands around anti-fraud and corruption measures,” says Brian Flack, General Counsel at Clutch Group. “Aman’s impressive background in law enforcement, leading corporate fraud and corruption investigations, and in designing risk assessment programs will be an invaluable asset to our clients dealing with these global, and often elusive, fraud and corruption risks.”

Aman Chee, an anti-fraud, bribery, and corruption expert, brings 19 years of experience to his new role. A flying enthusiast, Aman began his career with Cathay Pacific Airways before spending 14 years at the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) of Hong Kong, an organization dedicated to fighting corruption through law enforcement, prevention, and education, where he moved up the ranks to Chief Investigator. Subsequently, as Senior Manager of Fraud Investigation and Dispute Services at Ernst & Young, Aman helped clients design and implement robust compliance measures for global regulations such as the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the U.K. Bribery Act and the HK Prevention of Bribery Ordinance. Most recently, as Head of Anti-Fraud & Forensics at Deutsche Bank in Hong Kong, Aman managed Deutsche Bank’s anti-fraud program in the APAC region, focusing in particular on helping the bank prevent, detect, and investigate fraud.
