Have you retained a forensic accounting firm for help with a case of suspected fraud, damage calculations in litigation, or expert witness work? When you hired that firm, did you know who would be showing up to work on your case?
Large forensic accounting firms are an excellent resource in cases requiring lots of bodies and geographic expertise. International fraud cases that involve large companies require forensic accounting firms with vast numbers of employees and a wide range of services.
However, the down side is that you never know who will show up. Are you getting experienced staff, managers, or partners? Or are you getting inexperienced staff who are cutting their teeth on your fraud investigation?
When you need to be sure that you’re getting the experienced fraud examiner with hundreds of successful cases under your belt, you retain Tracy Coenen. Tracy personally handles all cases, with some limited clerical assistance when necessary.
What does this mean for the attorney and the client? Tracy sees all the numbers, analyzes all the documentation, and writes the expert report. Because she does all the investigative work, her opinions are supportable and her testimony is credible.
