From the art of interviewing, to recognizing mathematical irregularities, and following the money, Forensic Accountants are a proven invaluable tool for Attorneys and their clients. “Finding” the money combines the skill set of a financial investigator with the experience of locating otherwise hidden trails. Examples of cases requiring the experience of a Forensic Accountant are misappropriation of assets, money laundering, securities fraud, violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), income tax violations, hiding offshore assets and damages calculations.
