QuantaVerse Launches New Financial Crime Investigation Report to Streamline Level 1 AML Investigations


News Image

“The Level 1 FCIR was designed to make investigations conducted by first-level analysts more efficient,” explained David McLaughlin, CEO and Founder of QuantaVerse. “We adapted our original FCIR to aggregate only the most elemental information and serve it up to first-level analysts in a clear and l

QuantaVerse, which uses AI and machine learning to automate financial crime identification and investigations, has introduced an additional Financial Crime Investigation Report that addresses the specific needs of Level 1 AML compliance teams. The new report helps reduce the average time spent investigating an alert by over 50 percent.

Level 1 investigators at financial institutions are the first line of defense against money laundering perpetrated by criminals and terrorist financing organizations. They evaluate suspicious cases triggered by transaction monitoring system (TMS) alerts. These first-level investigators manually gather critical information from the Internet and multiple disparate databases and spend, on average, 20 to 90 minutes clearing an alert or attempting to determine if the case requires additional scrutiny.

The QuantaVerse AI-enabled Financial Crime Platform automates the AML investigation process. What the platform discovers is reported to analysts through distinct types of Financial Crime Investigation Reports (FCIRs). The new QuantaVerse Level 1 FCIR enables the speedy clearing or escalation of a case to a senior analyst. The report leads with a high-level summary of the case and includes alerts that triggered the investigation, automatically pulling descriptions of violated rules directly from the TMS. This limits the need for first-level analysts to leave the report to search other databases. The next section of the report provides risk scores related to reputation, monitoring, and intent, as well as overall risk segmentation which delivers an at-a-glance understanding of where risk lies for each entity and what requires consideration.

The final section of the report is a narrative summarizing risks that the entity exhibited along with those for which it was cleared. By articulating what risks have been eliminated along with the rationale for that conclusion, investigators can use these explanations to explain why a case was cleared. Due to the report’s modular architecture, the Level 1 FCIR can be adapted for multiple business lines, including retail, correspondent, and commercial banking.

“The Level 1 FCIR was born out of our clients’ need to make investigations conducted by first-level analysts more efficient,” explained David McLaughlin, CEO and Founder of QuantaVerse. “We worked tirelessly to adapt our original Financial Crime Investigation Report to aggregate only the most elemental information and serve it up to first-level analysts in a clear and logical report.”

The QuantaVerse family of FCIRs now includes:


  • Level 1 FCIR – helps first-level analysts to speed initial reviews of TMS alert investigations
  • High-Risk Entity Report – assists financial institutions in efficiently conducting periodic entity risk reviews
  • Alert-based FCIR – examines cases that have been triggered by TMS alerts including in-depth analysis of related entities and counterparties and the content required for filing SARs when indicated
  • Entity-based FCIR – analyzes and documents the risk associated with each customer and their counterparties for suspicious activity that a TMS system has failed to discover

QuantaVerse’s Level 1 FCIR is now available customers using the QuantaVerse Financial Crime Platform. To schedule a demo of the offering, please visit: https://quantaverse.net/contact.

Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP’s Social Justice Action Academy will continue its “Courageous Conversation” webinar series with a program focused on the social issue of criminal justice reform as it relates to wrongful convictions and rehabilitation of the incarcerated. The goal is to educate and empower the audience with ideas for tangible steps they can take through legal pro bono work and more to create a lasting impact.

The webinar, “Taking Action on Criminal Justice Reform,” will be held Jan. 14, 3:00 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. ET. The President/CEO of Unincarcerated Minds, Inc. Bobby Harris; Firm Government Law & Policy Shareholder Karen M. Kennard; and Shareholder and Greenberg Traurig Global Pro Bono Program Chair Caroline Heller will spearhead the discussion. Firm Shareholder and Chief Diversity Officer Nikki Lewis Simon will moderate.

“Criminal justice reform is not just a legal issue, it’s a human rights issue,” Simon said. “It is our hope that through this timely conversation about criminal justice reform – where we will share personal stories as well as information about resources, tools, and services – that people will feel equipped and empowered to take action and make a difference.”

Her oldest brother, Tim Cole, was wrongly convicted of a crime and died in prison in 1999, at the age of 39. After DNA testing proved his innocence, Cole became the first person in Texas to receive a posthumous exoneration and posthumous pardon. The Texas exoneration compensation system and the Texas Innocence Commission are named in his honor.

Harris heads Unincarcerated Minds Inc., a non-profit organization that provides returning citizens and citizens from marginalized communities in the Philadelphia area with life sustaining resources. Harry spent 29 years in prison and was sentenced to life imprisonment at the age of 15. He was released after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the sentence illegal.

Kennard, based in the firm’s Austin, TX office, focuses her practice on government law, policy and regulatory matters with an emphasis on municipal local government issues. Her experience spans more than two decades and includes positions as City Attorney for a large city and General Counsel for the largest municipal league in the country.

Heller is a shareholder in the Litigation Practice of the firm’s New York office.

In her role as Chair of the firm’s Global Pro Bono Program, Heller leads several initiatives addressing the need for access to justice for the most vulnerable of citizens, including children.

Simon, a commercial litigator based in the firm’s Miami office, has more than 21 years of experience as an attorney. In her capacity as Greenberg Traurig’s Chief Diversity Officer, Simon designs and guides strategic initiatives and programs to deepen firmwide diversity and inclusion efforts that further enrich client engagements and community investments.

The partners at GPFF are delighted to announce that Alan L. Yatvin, a preeminent police misconduct and civil rights litigator, has joined Greenblatt, Pierce, Funt and Flores, LLC (GPFF) as a partner. He will chair the firm’s Civil Rights department – long known for excellence in plaintiff’s civil rights matters.

Alan will continue to concentrate his practice on civil rights litigation, criminal defense in state, federal, and international tribunals, as well as the representation of students with special needs.

With a successful career spanning 37 years, Alan has tried cases ranging from death penalty homicides to complex municipal liability police misconduct cases. He has also briefed and/or argued appellate matters before the United States Supreme Court, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court, the Pennsylvania Superior Court, and the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague.

Alan has successfully litigated over 15 police shooting cases, recovering substantial compensation for victims and their families. On three separate occasions, he has also obtained federal jury verdicts against the City of Philadelphia on so-called Monell claims by showing a pattern and practice of police misconduct and the City’s failure to properly train or discipline its officers, placing him among the most successful attorneys in Philadelphia on these challenging claims.

“When my long-standing partner, Howard Popper, decided to retire, I wanted to find a new professional home for my practice. I wanted to join a firm with an impeccable reputation, immense resources, and a substantial practice. Ron and his firm hit all my criteria. Plus, the opportunity to work with Pat Pierce, who I have admired and collaborated with for years, was a great incentive to join the firm. I am thrilled,” said Mr. Yatvin.

After graduating from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City in 1983, Alan served as an Assistant Philadelphia and Federal Defender before entering private practice. He was managing partner of Popper & Yatvin from its founding in 1988 through 2020.

The Court of Common Pleas for the First Judicial District of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia) presented Alan with the 2010 Pro Bono Publico Award. Alan has been selected to the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers List every year since 2004. Alan is also a member of the Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

Referring to Alan in a special education appeal, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit wrote: “[W]e note that the litigation here was conducted by highly qualified and experienced counsel…” M.R. v. Ridley Sch. Dist., 868 F.3d 218, 230 n.9 (3d Cir. 2017).

Alan was a member of the National Board of Directors of the American Diabetes Association from 2015-2017 and continues to represent special needs students and their parents, with a concentration on the rights of students with diabetes. He is a resident of Philadelphia.

Technology Enhancements to the QuantaVerse Financial Crime Platform Extend its Lead in AML Innovation


News Image

“We are relentless in identifying undiscovered financial crime & automating up to 70% of the workload associated with TMS alert triage, investigations, and SAR-filing so investigators can focus on what most requires their attention and expertise,” said David McLaughlin, CEO & Founder of QuantaVerse.

QuantaVerse, which uses AI and machine learning to automate financial crime identification and investigations, finished 2020 well-positioned for continued growth in 2021 due to its dedicated focus on solving AML challenges and a commitment to innovation. In 2020, QuantaVerse introduced a series of technology enhancements to its AI-powered Financial Crime Platform.

“Comprised of financial crime specialists and exceptionally talented data scientists, the QuantaVerse team gets new insights from compliance teams using our AML solutions every day in the real world,” said David McLaughlin, CEO and Founder of QuantaVerse. “We are relentless in our efforts to identify otherwise undiscovered financial crime and automate up to 70% of the human workload associated with TMS alert triage, investigations, and SAR-filing so investigators can focus on what most requires their attention and expertise.”

Notable enhancements introduced by QuantaVerse this year include:

  • Explainability. QuantaVerse leveraged Local Interpretable Model-Agnostic Explanations (LIME) to make the findings of complex algorithms more understandable. Investigators see scores for various types of AML-related risks and can now also understand how all types of risks contribute to the overall risk assigned to an alert or entity.
  • Learning. QuantaVerse extended its model training capability. The platform now leverages input from an entire network of investigators to train and refine the QuantaVerse machine. One such feature is a new investigator annotation tool which lets users quickly provide feedback to the system. QuantaVerse can now use these combined learnings to inform its neural network.
  • Web Collector and Analytics. QuantaVerse enhanced its unstructured web data collection function and added a new analytics capability to rationalize that data. Additional language capabilities were added to the QuantaVerse adverse media screening process, including for keywords that indicate potential criminality. The infrastructure built to enable this advancement supports the quick addition of new languages as required by clients.
  • New Observables. In 2020, QuantaVerse added numerous new observables to its Financial Crime Platform. QuantaVerse’s AI agents determine the prevalence of risk-bearing characteristics, or observables, related to transacting entities. One of the QuantaVerse observables unveiled this year was sanctioned jurisdiction affiliation which leverages data to identify if entities are engaging with sanctioned jurisdictions even though their transactions are not transferred through sanctioned jurisdictions.
  • Enhancements and Expansion of Financial Crime Investigation Reports (FCIRs). In the last 12 months, QuantaVerse’s entity- and alert-based FCIRs were enhanced. New usability enhancements were added to the reports, including a narrative section that explains what risks were cleared and the rationale for those determinations. For investigators tasked with reviewing flagged TMS alerts, the FCIR narratives have helped reduce the average time spent investigating a case by as many as 40 minutes. Additionally, QuantaVerse debuted its High-Risk Entity Report, an enhanced entity-based FCIR that assists financial institutions in efficiently conducting periodic entity risk reviews.

Pre-Court Defense and Intervention before Arraignment in Los Angeles Criminal Court


California Criminal Lawyers at Eisner Gorin LLP

Eisner Gorin LLP

California State-Bar Certified Criminal Law Specialist

Through a process known as pre-court intervention, a criminal defense lawyer may be able to persuade prosecutors to reduce or even drop criminal charges against a client before the case proceeds to arraignment in court. All attorneys should be aware of this important process as it could cause a client’s record to remain clean and arrest-free.

Despite a felony arrest involving accusations of domestic violence, sex offenses, or white-collar crime charges, Dmitry Gorin and his team at Eisner Gorin LLP have successfully closed cases for clients with no filed criminal charges at arraignment. The client was then able to report not having an “arrest” pursuant to Penal Code Section 849.5, as this statute converts the law enforcement contact which led to the arrest as a “detention only.”

The scheduled pre-court intervention program will be presented through ZOOM on Wednesday December 9, 2020, from 12:15 pm to 1:15pm with the LA Law Library. The class will cover criminal defense strategy including:


  • When it’s appropriate to use pre-court intervention.
  • Preparation of a formal legal position to show factual weaknesses;
  • Use of private investigator to assist in finding missed evidence;
  • Negotiation with prosecutor to convince them to reduce or drop charges;
