The right forensic accounting expert can bring clarity and precision to an insurance claim investigation. That’s why it is important to work with a forensic accountant who is well versed in the calculation of losses and who has the ability to present findings in a clear and simple fashion.
Our forensic accountants have evaluated thousands of insurance claims relating to business interruption, extra expense, employee dishonesty, fidelity and surety, business personal property, product liability, data restoration, accounts receivable, personal injury loss of income, wrongful death and builders’ risk.
Insurance adjusters and attorneys handle a large number of claims and want them closed accurately and efficiently. We understand this need and have earned a reputation for preparing clear and concise calculations.
When we assist attorneys in accountants’ malpractice cases, whether the clients are plaintiffs or defendants, our litigation specialists draw on their skills as both forensic accountants and practicing CPAs. Our years of experience and technical expertise allow us to evaluate accountants’ professional services and determine whether an accountant has complied with professional standards and the terms of the engagement contract.
We provide an initial review of documentation to determine if there is a reasonable basis to support or defend a malpractice claim. At trial, we identify and explain relevant accounting standards in terms that can be understood by non-accountants.
