Forensic investigations involve detailed inquiries and examinations into suspected general fraud, corruption, and misconduct for the purpose of providing factual information, including financial accounting information to legal counsel, audit, and special committees; responding to administrative, disciplinary, regulatory, or criminal inquiries; assisting with management reporting; liaising with law enforcement and prosecution authorities; aiding in asset recovery; and providing testimony in court or arbitration.
Our services include:
- Investigations into suspected fraud or misconduct that require specific data gathering, analysis, interviewing, and reporting skills based upon legal and regulatory jurisdictions
- Financial reporting and securities investigations into suspected fraud, accounting irregularities, and misstatements or other improprieties affecting the integrity of an organization's financial reporting system
- Bribery and corruption investigations into allegations or suspicions of violations of anti-bribery and corruption statutes, regulations, and codes.
As our clients work to keep stakeholders informed, uncover systemic weaknesses, assimilate lessons, satisfy regulators, manage litigation, and stem fraud losses, our goal is to help them establish and assess the relevant facts and their implications. By focusing on what evidence is likely to be relevant, where it might be found, and how it can best be gathered appropriately, we can help our clients achieve their objectives on their timeline. Our work is often directed at establishing the facts relevant to who, what, why, how, when, where, and how much, in addition to assisting in recovering losses within and across national boundaries.
Access to an international network of member firms gives us a multinational capability to respond to requests and enables our teams to handle complex cross-border engagements.
