Top Disputes & Investigations

Accounting policies and practices are routinely subjected to scrutiny by regulators, law enforcement officials, business counterparties and whistleblowers.
We expect that COVID-19 will bring an additional set of challenges for companies, including new forms of scrutiny. According to the SEC, the pandemic may raise risks to investors because it exposes pre-existing accounting or disclosure improprieties, leads issuers to engage in improper conduct, or permits companies to disguise previously undisclosed problems.
We stand ready to help. We specialize in forensic accounting investigations, financial record reconstruction, interview techniques, computer forensics and electronic data retrieval, enterprise-wide complex data modeling and analysis, quantifying damages, providing expert witness testimony at trial, and designing and implementing robust internal controls.
Our professionals are among the industry’s top practitioners and include former “Big Four” audit firm partners, former prosecutors, law enforcement officials and regulators from key agencies, including the SEC, the Financial Accounting Standards Board and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.
In this section of our 2020 Insights: Top Disputes & Investigations, we highlight our work helping clients resolve disputes on major Forensic Accounting & Advisory Services projects.
