Protecting your organization from a variety of false claims, disputes, or legal actions should be at the forefront of your business priorities. BPM’s Forensic Accounting practice includes a team of forensic accountants ready to delve into your accounting processes and records to provide litigation support on your behalf before or during a trial.

What is Forensic Accounting?

"Forensic" – in this case – means "suitable for use in a court of law," and our Forensic Accounting team works to that standard and potential outcome. At BPM, we can assist with assessing claims related to insurance, personal injury, fraud, anti-money laundering, false construction claims or royalty audits.

What Does a Forensic Accountant Do?

In many cases, our forensic accountants assist law firms and law enforcement agencies that need these specialized services. We also serve public and private companies that need forensic accountants to investigate or examine employee misconducts, including embezzlements and misappropriation of company assets. In addition, organizations have worked with our fraud examiners to conduct fraud risk assessment studies, and they identified areas where internal controls are not suitably designed or operating effectively.
