There is ongoing demand in Asia-Pacific for on-the-ground specialists who understand the specific political, economic, regulatory and cultural climates of the countries where they are conducting investigations.

Leading global investigations firm, Nardello & Co, today announced the opening of a new office in Tokyo, and the appointment of Toshinari Asano as Managing Director and Japan practice head. Ben Rowse, head of Nardello & Co.’s Asia-Pacific practice, will relocate from Hong Kong to Tokyo in August, where he will continue to lead the firm’s operations throughout the region.

Nardello & Co.’s Japan practice will assist Japanese clients in navigating the complex and ever-shifting challenges they face operating overseas, while also providing investigative services to local and international clients in Japan.

“We are very pleased to welcome Toshinari, a seasoned professional who has a decade-long track record as an investigator of the highest caliber and integrity,” said Dan Nardello, Chief Executive Officer of Nardello & Co. “I am confident that he―along with the rest of our team―will be able to deliver on the growing demand we are experiencing from clients in the Asia-Pacific region.”

Asano brings significant experience to his new position, having conducted a wide variety of reputational due diligence and complex investigative assignments involving fraud and corruption, asset searches, litigation and arbitration support, strategic intelligence and political risk analysis for clients in Japan and overseas. Prior to joining Nardello & Co. Asano was a senior investigator in Japan with two international investigations firms. He began his career in the financial services industry, working for a Japanese long-term credit bank and a major U.S. investment bank. He has also held a senior management position at a Japanese-Israeli technology venture company.

“There is ongoing demand in Asia-Pacific for on-the-ground specialists who understand the specific political, economic, regulatory and cultural climates of the countries where they are conducting investigations,” said Ben Rowse. “Toshinari is a talented investigator with extensive experience helping clients understand, mitigate and frame the local challenges that they face within a broader global context.”

Commenting on his appointment, Asano said: “I am delighted to be leading Nardello & Co.’s practice in Japan. The firm is renowned for its commitment to client service and the quality of its work product. I look forward to contributing to the firm’s outstanding work.”
