client reviews

They deliver timely and professional processes and reports. They bring value by engaging with the people in our organization in a way that demonstrates an understanding of our institutional culture. I have received positive comments from stakeholders across our organization about Forte’s investigators including that they felt heard and respected throughout the process.”

Li-Jeen Broshko, General Counsel, SFU

“We use Forte Law regularly to conduct external investigations. Although it may sound basic, one of the most important factors for us in investigations is timeliness, which Forte has consistently delivered. I receive regular process updates and am never left wondering what is happening or when I might get a report. All of the reports I have received from Forte have been well thought out and professional and have provided the information and analysis needed by our internal decision makers.
