Forensic Accounting


Your business peace of mind.

As forensic accountants, we use accounting, auditing, digital forensics, and investigative skills to search through your company’s financial reports and uncover the facts in your case. We use our specialized forensic accounting skills to find, record, and summarize financial losses. We also look at financial damages from fraudulent behavior, a damaging event or a cybersecurity breach.

Our forensic accounting skills are often applied in litigation. We are regularly asked to testify as expert witnesses in the cases we work on. As forensic accountants, we are asked to quantify damages in a wide range of cases to help resolve disputes and assist parties in reaching settlements rather than going to court.

Uncovering Fraud and Hidden Assets
Our team of forensic accountants are often requested to determine if crimes have been committed. These types of crimes range from employee theft to insurance fraud. We are also retained in divorce cases to search for hidden assets.

Our fraud detection investigators can conduct fraud examinations to determine if your business has potentially been exploited by others. Fraud in its various forms can be difficult to prevent and even harder to catch. Using our team of certified public accountants (CPAs) and certified fraud examiners (CFEs), we find the truth in your case.

If an insurance claim is involved, we have the expertise to examine loss and fraud claims for insurance companies or for your business. We help you reduce expenses and speed up claim processing by providing forensic accounting and economic damages expertise into each case. This is always done in a fast, efficient manner.

If you're worried about fraud, our investigative techniques are also highly sought after by law enforcement. Our litigation support process allows us to document fraudulent activity using our investigative skills to identify the facts. Our goal is to get you back to business as usual. We also offer consulting to ensure that safeguards are put in place to make sure you are taking every step possible to avoid fraud.

To complement our forensic accounting work, we also have a highly skilled team of digital forensic examiners. This allows us to dig deep into all types of data to get the full picture into your investigation.
