Forensic accounting is already a specialty within the broader field of accounting, so some people never consider that you can narrow down your practice even more. We focus on investigating numbers, but that doesn’t mean we have to do every sort of investigation out there.
I’m a firm believer that narrowing your focus helps you be better at what you do and get more (and better!) business.
I’ve been very clear about what I do within the field of forensic accounting, and this has helped me gain clients. Things I do:
- Corporate fraud investigations
- White collar criminal defense cases
- Lifestyle analysis for divorce and child support
- Damage calculations for corporate lawsuits
- Business divorces (sorting out the numbers before they part ways)
- Insurance fraud (things like financial motive for arson)
My work does NOT include: –
- Business valuations
- Searching the globe for hidden bank accounts or other assets
- Interviewing suspects to get a confession
- Damages related to intellectual property infringement
I know what I do well, and I like focusing on that. There is so much work out there in my chosen specialties, that I’ve been able to build a thriving business.
