In the public, private, governmental and not-for-profit sectors across the world, economic crimes, including fraud, continue to be a major threat to stakeholder value, and cost U.S. businesses billions of dollars annually. As a result, fraud prevention, detection, and investigation continue to be a focus of organizations to minimize the cost of fraud. Further, instances arise in organizations where financial anomalies are identified and the cause is unknown and require forensic investigation.
The forensic accounting, fraud detection and investigatory experience of our professionals is garnered from working with privately-held and Fortune 500 companies in a variety of industries, as well as not-for-profit organizations, investigating complex financial issues and frauds on global and local levels, and providing expert testimony relating to the misconduct and resultant economic damages.
