Forensic Investigations Take a Variety of Forms

The services of a forensic accountant are required for a range of investigations across many different industries.  Here are the most common assignments in forensic accounting:

  • Disputes among owners. The compensation and benefits given to each of the owners is one of the more common issues in these cases.

  • Personal injury. When economic losses from a personal injury are in question, a forensic accountant is brought in.

  • Insurance claims. Because insurance policies vary greatly in their terms and conditions, such engagements require a thorough policy review to determine the appropriate method of figuring the loss. A forensic accountant can assist from either the insured or the insurer’s standpoint.

  • Business fraud investigations. The investigation of employee fraud often requires a determination of the extent of the fraud. It may or may not include the identification of a perpetrator.  Many times, such assignments necessitate interviews of staff who had access to the funds.

  • Matrimonial disputes. Usually, when a dispute of this nature arises, forensic accountants must locate and evaluate the disputed assets, be they businesses, property, or fiduciary.

  • Business economic losses. These kinds of engagements include contract disputes, construction claims, expropriations, product liability claims, trademark and patent infringements, and losses stemming from an alleged breach of a non-compete agreement.
