The use of forensic accountants within litigation matters has been growing. More and more attorneys have come to realize the value forensic accountants can add to a case, delivering specialized accounting expertise in a number of areas.
From record requests through expert testimony, forensic accountants can prove invaluable in assisting counsel. By obtaining adequate financial records, reviewing provided records for completeness and reasonableness, reconstructing records and accounts as needed, preparing support for interrogatories and depositions, performing calculations and providing expert witness services, forensic accountants can play a major role in litigation.
Our firm specializes in fraud, employee embezzlement and financial crimes. We also have significant experience with evaluating internal controls within organizations, as well as fraud prevention.
In addition, we have experience working with attorneys providing litigation support within several contexts and venues, including civil litigation, matrimonial matters and probate matters. In many cases, our skills are used to assist counsel in drafting document requests, and no further involvement was needed.
Prior case examples include partner and member disputes, employment issues, breach of contracts, tenant/landlord disputes, trespass and constructive interference matters.
We do not specialize in the area of business valuation or bankruptcies, but would be happy to offer the contact information of colleagues who do specialize in these areas.
