Bringing Clarity by Looking Beyond the Numbers
Unfortunately, corporate and financial misconduct occurs on an all-too-regular basis. If not identified and resolved quickly, the ramifications can be devastating to even the most stable company. At Secretariat we bring years of experience and expertise to examine the facts and drill down to the reality of the situation. We know how to compile the financial evidence and communicate our findings to the decision makers, whether that is internally or in civil or criminal matters. Our prominent investigations team includes certified public accountants, chartered accountants, certified fraud examiners, chartered financial analysts, forensic accountants and other specialists.
Our forensic accounting experts have significant experience investigating allegations of financial misconduct. Our experience on these investigations and other litigation matters has taught us the importance of continuously exercising our professional skepticism when conducting interviews, analyzing datasets and reviewing documents.
Because investigations are dynamic and complex projects, we understand the importance of maintaining flexibility and applying creative thinking and solutions throughout the process. We also recognize and strive to apply consistent and frequent communication practices not only within our team, but also with counsel. Because we work across numerous industry sectors, we are experts in the different types of fraud and misconduct commonly perpetrated – and how to identify and address them swiftly.
