Peter Anthony Gallo

Principal, Greenwood Atlantic LLC

Peter Gallo is a qualified lawyer admitted to practice in Scotland, Hong Kong and New York, with an MBA and an LLM in International Criminal Law. He spent 19 years as an investigator based in Hong Kong, working on investigations in some of the most corrupt countries in Asia and was a leading authority on the identification and detection of money laundering.

In 2011, he was recruited by the United Nations, as an investigator in the Office of Internal Oversight Services, Investigations Division in New York; the office that is supposed to investigate corruption, fraud and other criminality in the Organization.

After his insights and personal experiences there, he became an outspoken critic of the UN, particularly with regard to the manner in which corruption is covered up.

In April 2016 he testified before a Congressional Committee on the lack of accountability and the organization’s failure to address the widespread sexual abuses in peacekeeping missions, and was one of the founders of the group ‘Hear their Cries’ which was established specifically to fight the United Nations abuse of ‘privileges and immunities’ to protect UN staff members accused of child sex offences.

He has been quoted extensively in the international media and appeared on television in a number of countries worldwide.
