Forensic Accounting

Forensic Accounting is, quite simply, the application of accounting as a science to assist in the settling of legal issues. In reality, accounting, as the language of business, is an issue in many commercial legal disputes. Forensic accounting is quite different from an audit in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and involves specific, specialized techniques that may include the reconstruction of the transactions at issue, tracing of funds, verification of reported transactions and other in-depth analysis that does not take place in a financial (or GAAP) audit. We perform all of our forensic accounting engagements with the assumption that the work will be used in a courtroom or other proceeding where a trier-of-fact is present.
