She joined that firm at its inception and helped establish its investigative practice. She also played an active role in client engagements, including leading a billion dollar asset recovery investigation of a family-controlled company for a US multinational. That investigation spanned Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the US, and identified numerous businesses and substantial assets. Menschel has led numerous other asset searches against foreign sovereigns, global and domestic corporations and high-net worth individuals. Other significant engagements included managing a due diligence in Asia and the US for an international financial institution seeking to obtain its banking license in the US, as well as helping to establish “best practices” on behalf of a domestic hedge fund for pre-employment investigations of prospective employees and due diligence investigations on trading platform partners.
Menschel began her investigative career as a research analyst at Kroll, and rose to Director of Research for the New York office and then to Global Head of Training for the Business Intelligence and Investigations practice.
Menschel is a graduate of Harvard College and the Harvard Business School. After graduating from Harvard Business School, Menschel served as a Special Advisor in the Directorate of Intelligence at the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s headquarters in Washington, DC. In that capacity, she worked with senior management to refine and strengthen the FBI’s intelligence gathering capabilities and implement its intelligence transformation efforts in response to the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.
