Working closely alongside outside counsel and a state office of the attorney general, Gryphon worked to demonstrate that compliance requirements were not being fulfilled by certain companies that were selling products in the state that were considered a potential danger to public health.

After an intensive review of hundreds of documents, Gryphon identified algorithms that companies had developed in order to perform their internal compliance. We then recreated these metrics and implemented them on historical datasets that could have been available to the company at the time their metrics were active. The purpose of the investigation was to assess how the product volume that was identified by the companies’ compliance metrics compared to the product volume that could have been identified by the same metrics when implemented on the available data.

Our investigation found that the product volume that companies could have identified using the available data as being in violation of their own compliance algorithms was not equal to the product volume that they ultimately identified in their reporting.
