Litigation Support

Litigation SupportLitigation support using auditing and accounting techniques

When you see the term “forensic” it might cause you to think of today’s popular TV crime shows such a “ CSI” or “NCIS” where investigators use DNA, blood stains, fingerprints, and photos of the crime scene to solve a murder or other crime committed against a person.

Like criminal investigators, the specialty known as forensic accounting combines accounting and auditing standards and procedures plus good investigative skills to assist in cases, either civil or criminal, where property is involved. Examples of cases that may involve the services of a forensic accountant are securities and insurance fraud and embezzlement, to name a few. Forensic accountants are often called upon to take part in legal proceedings by providing evidence necessary in the resolution of a case or to give testimony as an expert witness.

Litigation Support refers to cases that require forensic accounting in legal disputes involving the calculation and estimation of economic damages. Cases involving divorce and support issues that arise due to marital dissolution or a lawsuit resulting from a breach of contract are examples of cases that require the services of a forensic accountant.
