Long Description


Deloitte's Forensic services professionals identify and resolve various types of corporate disputes and irregularities. We also carry out analyses, provide opinions and draft clear, logical reports. We apply a variety of quantitative and qualitative techniques aimed at identifying and analyzing presumed damages stemming from the following cases: business interruptions, broken contracts, negligence, breaches of obligations, intellectual property violations and other similar situations. We quantify actual or potential losses while helping our clients reduce their fraud-related risks, tracing misappropriated funds and resolving business and financial disputes on a fast-track basis.


Our Toronto office is currently seeking a Senior Associate on the Discovery Team within the Deloitte Forensic practice.
With the proliferation of electronic data, companies are finding it increasingly difficult to identify the documents required to comply with regulatory requests, conduct investigations or resolve business disputes. As a leading provider of electronic discovery services in Canada, the Discovery team offers a full end-to-end solution for clients, from collection, through document review, to the final production of documents.


We work on a variety of matters, including: 


  • Civil litigation
  • Class actions
  • Competition Bureau inquiries, including responses to Requests For Information (RFIs) and Supplemental Information Requests (SIRs)
  • Corporate investigations
  • Diligence
  • Freedom of Information Requests for government and quasi-governmental organizations


Our Discovery team members use a robust methodology to enhance the work of our document review teams while minimizing costs. Our discovery processes are supported by state-of the-art technology infrastructure that ensures the proper preservation, collection, identification, review, analysis and production of documents. Our goal is to help companies with their complete discovery needs, so that they can get back to business.

  • Development of junior and off-shore staff, 

The Discovery team members work closely with forensic accountants, lawyers, litigation support teams, document review teams, clients and investigators with a view to producing analysis, expertise, and advice in support of investigations and litigation matters.  This is not a back office role, but rather a position in which you will enter direct and frequent communication with all levels of stakeholders on engagements
Given the nature of the work involved, a flexible work schedule and availability to travel inside and outside Canada are essential for all individuals joining the Discovery team. Candidates should also be able to obtain "secret" level security clearance from the Canadian government, as well as a U.S. work visa.
