Kroll seems to have no problem advertising themselves as the leading company for a myriad of mega sounding responsibilities - global risk management, litigation support, corporate investigations, compliance,due diligence, asset recovery-- global and national. They are either preeminent, premier, number 1, or the leading leader of too many specialties to name.
Plenty of wikipedia info (disinfo?) too, but you'd have to have a little special knowledge to understand the true nature of their business(s).
If one has reason to dig deeper, they’ll soon see that Kroll, recently, seeks to be top dog in credit ratings, and bond ratings.
They have only just entered the bond and credit feild and so not No. 1 yet.
Not yet as top of the heap as they claim to be in litigation support, internet security products, employment readiness, forensic accounting, advisory solutions, threat management, advisory solutions, government security clearance, global cyber security, national cyber security, corporate intelligence, background checks.
They also supply ammo and other toys to law enforcement under thier Kroll O'Gara and Kroll International guises. O'Gara has been responsible for protecting every President. For while now Jules Kroll has been the chairman of Kroll' Ogara and Obama counts on him for his security.
And, those claims-- of being trusted,premier, leading... rarely- if ever- have been held up to scrutiny. When scrutiny shows up, it soon disseapears, and a few name changes take care of any lingering bad P.R.
Kroll employs a vast array of PR whizzes and even tons of journalists so a few planted press stories to accompany silenced news stories, and their many businesses get to stay in business and deep under the radar.
Jack of all Trades or masters of way too much?
If that doesn’t sound like too many responsibilities, they have even expanded into forensics. They have forensic accounting services, and forensic lab services for drug and urine testing. Such results that might emerge from their Virginia and Louisiana drug testing labs have been relied upon by law enforcement, for years now. In 2010, after they recieved bad press when Kroll Labaratory Specialists was sued by an Eric Landon, they simply changed their name to Alere Toxicolgy, and none seemed to be the wiser.
Men and woman have been vindicated or imprisoned based on their lab results. They have a fat contract with California. dpa.ca.gov/personnel-policies/drug-testing/pdf/dpa-177.pdf www.calhr.ca.gov/Documents/drug-testing-kroll-pricing-sheet.pd
They have expanded such services all over America, and in their Alere Guise have expanced to all corners of the globe.
Recently, a man named Eric Landon sued them for negligence . www.usatoday.com/.../10/17/stateline-drug-test-labs/2999705
He was a few short weeks from his five year long probation(for forgery) being up, and right before it was up they came, and took a random sample, and he tested positive. He has been so wary of the systems in place, that he’d already gotten a result from another lab, and it was negative, but the court would not give that lab any credence for a long time to come. He was arraigned the day before his probation was set to expire. It is highly probable that Mr. Landon is that rare defendant who has the strength to question such results, and then the ability to fight this display of either blatant corruption or reckless disregard for facts or truth.
From what I’ve gathered, it is no longer in dispute that he should have tested negative. He is now representing himself in a suit in a NY court. Very few, if any lawyers, like to face sinister forces such as Kroll. Kroll's employee rosters consists of so many ex prosecutors, law enforcement of all stripes, and even judges-- who wants to mess with that?
Landon is suing the Louisiana Kroll lab. You can read more here: http://law.justia.com/cases/new-york/court-of-appeals/2013/142.html
Forensic negligence issues( that destroy lives) aside, Kroll has been called up on to investigate big business and big government for over four decades now. It takes only a cursory google search to reveal that American Governments, International goverments, or big big business have used them often to investigate corruption and matters of controversy. Cases that require the most trustworthy investigations have landed on their laps for four decades straight, even as serious scandals threatened to unmask them in the Cayman Islands, Brazil, South Africa, and the United States. Even the specter of being implicated in three massive Ponzi Schemes( Allen Standford, Scott Rothstein, David Tannenbaum,) faced them, they were awarded contract after contract with Governements across the globe.
Their reports are legendary for those in the know. These reports have been regarded as gospel in many big cases. Cases as big as Enron and Chevron and Iraq . Kroll was awarded the most impressive of contracts with the TSA and Homeland Security as accusations against them flew in courtrooms throughout the world.
Their branching out into forensic testing strikes me as unbearably ominous, but that could be bias talking since I recently digested that Jules Kroll’s son, Nick Kroll ,was the instigator of a five year odyssey of injustice, in my case.
And, yet so many have never heard of the Krolls.
I didn’t until two months ago, or at least I had no idea that the name “Kroll” in so many reports and mystifying statements, in my case, meant the world.
Here is a nice concise way for you to see what happened to me and my family. But, here there really was some sort of love triangle. In my case they had to invent one-- to make it give any sense to the senselessnes. Otherwise, the story is step for step what happened to us.http://wikispooks.com/wiki/Ian_Puddick
(Nick Kroll was the name Tig Notaro chose as a key witness to events that never occurred, and one that she made her business for judges to see. All that happened hinged in his desire to impress her and get a show at Largo, and an easy entree into the "comedy world." At the same exact time, she would give him a show at Larog. His name was the one who got her the corrupted LAPD's Threat Management Unit, to protect her interests and assets -which were now interwined with Nick Kroll's interests. He recently told a Washington Post writer that Tig Notaro was his "oldest and best comedy friend" and he would do anything for her.
Then, when I chose to never plea when innocent, Nick Kroll, submitted the most vicious and false witness statement to the prosecution. That statement sought to win a conviction when no charges would ever have been brought absent Nick Kroll's favors. Though we never saw him, and It is highly doubful that he was even there, he was willing to swear to a host of crimes that LAPD officers, Jaqueline Montalvo and Janell Badar, failed to note. Well, Jaqueline Montalvo was dead by then so he figured he'd come in and turn the tides for this Tig thing.
For years we just assumed he was some wannabe comedian like Scott Boxenbaum and Kevin Seccia, looking for easy gigs. Now, I've learned that the reason why a Scott Boxenbaum and a Harris Wittels were all over comedy message boards, urging anyone who would listen that I was a stalker who stalked "tons of female comedians all over the country," and had to be "shunned and banned" on sight was due to direct orders from Nick Kroll. Nick's mom, Lynn, is great pals with Kharlene Boxenbaum and so it went. Now I know why the public defender, Anan Desai, said to me on the first day, " What is going on in the comedy world. This case is a joke.")
Perhaps, the lack of name recognition in the 99% is due to the humbleness that this Huffington Post writer saw in heir to the throne, and well-reviewed actor,and comedian- Nick Kroll. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kyle-dowling/nick-kroll_b_2680491.html
You can read more here http://www.huffingtonpost.com/news/nick-kroll and all over gawker, jezebel, the New York times.Pages and pages of fawning praise for Nick Kroll's contributions to comedy. New York Magazine's "Vulture" column would cover his belches, if they could. Same with Huffington Post and too many others to name.
Kroll employs big time journalists too. Google "Kroll Journalists," to get a sample. So many investigative journalists now call Kroll- home. There are Pulitzer prize winning journalists who openly declare their new jobs with Kroll.
Here’s one that wouldn’t bite. I urge you to give it a read. It doesn't cover the half of it , but it does express what has become of so much of our press: http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2010/08/a-spy-in-the-jungle/60770/
This 1998 article in Business week http://www.businessweek.com/stories/1998-11-08/jules-kroll-danger-is-his-business gives the novice Kroll researcher a nice sense of how vast is their influence
In the late 1970s, he helped create a new market for corporate investigations. A onetime Manhattan assistant district attorney, he realized that corporations would pay big for an investigative firm that could dig out employee fraud and other malfeasance.He recruited a savvy coterie of former CIA spies, FBI agents, and prosecutors by paying them as much as twice their public-sector salaries
Kroll has been the last word on matters as various and sundry as the JFK assassination .
(In short, when NBC and Dick Clark were gung ho about a second assassin story, Kroll’s report made that seem uncredible and that was scrapped.)
Whatever the case the man, Gerald Posner, who is credited with writing the definitive book on the assassination, “Case Closed.” Appears to like Nick Kroll’s comic stylings
This is the "Too Much Tuna" prank sketch... - Jeffrey Gurian's ...
This is the "Too Much Tuna" prank sketch from Kroll Show last night on COMEDY CENTRAL, with me, Nick Kroll, ... John John Hall and Gerald Posner like this.

9- 10- Interview whistleblower Richard Chang. Source: http://wikispooks.com/wiki/Richard_Chang
(Note: Allegations made by Chang’s family that Chang was not depressed and was a family man and it made to them no sense that during or right after the Kroll operatives left, he’d jump to his death. Chang was not involved with the corruption but rather had reported it.)
