TRCI has been recognized as expert in financial cases involving trading abuses.  We have worked with attorneys to investigate, analyze and clarify complex financial transactions and provided valuable insights and testimony.

TRCI offers expertise to the legal community.
       - Litigation Support

TRCI has provided investigative services and litigation support to the legal and banking industries for some of the most widely reported institutional trading cases. TRCI has proven valuable to litigation cases because its principals have been on all sides of traditional industry perspectives: trading -vs.- management, front -vs.- back office, financial service providers -vs.- end-users. This experience gives them unique insights into a case, and it enables them to uncover the error, omission, root cause, and, when necessary, the culprit. TRCI also has the ability to communicate its findings to a jury in an unintimidating and lucid manner. ​

Litigation support experience includes testifying on behalf of a large regional brokerage firm regarding fraud; testifying for arbitrations for a Fortune 100 Company and a Top 10 Bank in which the settlement was $150 million; assisting in an investigation firm regarding a high profile ongoing corporate accounting scandal; and serving as an expert on a savings loan case for abuse of trading practices in the bond area. 

TRCI's President, Tim Scala's expert opinion is often sought and his commentary has appeared in Time, Barron'sWall Street Journal, American Banker and Newsweek International, among other major financial publications. He has appeared as a regular weekly guest on CNBC's "Market Wrap," he has co-authored a bi-weekly market newsletter and co-produced a weekly financial segment on a regional news radio station. Mr. Scala has served as a member of the Board of Directors for FOREX USA (now known as FMA -Financial Markets Association), a non-profit organization for the foreign exchange and money market industry, and has been responsible for training over 2,000 professional traders.
