Forensic Accounting & Fraud Investigation
We conduct accounting investigations involving various allegations of financial malfeasance. Many of our shareholder dispute business valuation projects include reconstruction of financial statements and identifying misappropriated or personal expenses. We have worked on several matters involving a business sale that resulted in litigation and allegation of financial statement fraud. These complex matters require analysis of both forensic accounting issues and analysis of business value.
We also conduct transaction intensive fraud investigations relating to allegations of employee embezzlement.
