Fraud & Forensic Investigation Services

  

Our expert team provides detailed forensic reconstruction and fraud investigation advisory to assist attorneys in investigations of all shapes and sizes. We deliver defendable economic and valuation analysis for the myriad of financial and accounting issues involved in these processes. 

Investigations are inherently intense, and our professional approach to supporting documentation and communication are core advantages stemming from our cross-functional expertise. 

Fraud and forensic investigations are also often very complex, multi-year engagements. A blend of technical acumen and effective patience are critical to success. We have excelled within these litigation assignments through our emphasis on transparency and a tireless work ethic that is exhibited continuously throughout the engagement process.

How We Assist Clients

 

Sample fraud and forensic investigation support services entail:

  • Alimony and child support capacity analysis
  • Analysis of preliminary valuation results and expert report delivery
  • Arm's-length salary benchmarking analysis to derive projected earnings
  • Bill-paying capacity analysis
  • Critique and rebuttal of competing expert reports
  • Deposition testimony
  • Detailed written reports or summary rebuttal reports
  • Digging for hidden assets such as offshore accounts, trusts, and real property
  • Financial modelling of key variables
  • Financial modelling of former spouse's personal or business interests
  • Financial statement analysis of key fraud areas:
    • Accounts Receivables
    • Accounts Payable
    • Inventory
    • Unearned Revenue balances with Current Liabilities
    • Revenue Recognition policies
  • Forensic statistical modelling
  • Fraudulent tracing
  • Fraudulent conveyance research and analysis
  • Interview of key parties 
  • Interview transcript critique and review
  • Lifestyle analysis of accused parties
  • Lifestyle needs of accused dependents and children
  • Negotiation assistance
  • Report preparation 

In addition, forensic accounting procedures encompass tracing, vouching, record reconciliation, and e-Discovery. We also advise clients in all stages of procedure.

We perform our services on a flat-fee or hourly basis with leading attorneys, alternative investment funds, CFOs, CPAs, and other C-suite corporate executives. We strongly feel engagement scope and fee ranges should be communicated effectively and efficiently.

We accordingly serve clients in stages, and we encourage clients to take a methodical, calculated approach to deciding which professional offerings are necessary or optional. 

Our first service stage is dubbed the NAV Situation Scan (TM). The Situation Scan helps both our clients and our teams diagnose the services necessary for fulfilment of client objectives. We then communicate the results of the Situation Scan to derive a suggested road-map. The NAV team next proposes a time frame for delivery of service milestones. We are inherently flexible, and our Situation Scans outline a proposed plan of action and not a mandatory obligation. We have found clients cherish this "ramp-up or ramp-down" flexibility that can be implemented at any time.
