Anyone who reads a newspaper will know that no enterprise can afford to be complacent about the risk of suffering fraud. Even a system of strong internal controls cannot necessarily offer complete protection. The fact that a business has not suffered fraud does not mean it is immune. Fraud is a traumatic experience for all parties involved and its consequences can seriously affect the continuation of an enterprise.
Our team is experienced in investigating many types of fraud. We can help you minimise the consequences of fraud and provide expert assistance in tracing misappropriated assets and funds. We will work with prosecuting authorities and provide advice concerning the appropriate avenue to report the fraud. We also have considerable experience of presenting the findings of our work as evidence to the Court.
Additionally, we recognise that being charged with fraud is a serious matter and can have a permanent impact on an individual's career and employability. We recognise that every person is entitled to a defence and we can work with lawyers and advisers to assist in the preparation of defence for individuals and organisations charged with criminal or regulatory offences.
