Fraud and financial irregularities are some of the most complex and challenging issues facing companies today.
On discovering an irregularity, an organization is often unprepared to respond and react appropriately. This can result in major financial damage, as well as posing serious reputational and regulatory risks to the business. Despite these threats, many organizations fail to take adequate steps to prevent, identify, respond to and recover from such incidents.
Kroll’s unique blend of service offerings allows us to provide clients with expert advice and support at every stage of the process, leading from investigation to recovery, training and prevention.
Our investigators are trained in interviewing, evidence gathering and surveillance, with the most up to date investigative techniques. Kroll has detailed knowledge of the admissibility of evidence and standards of proof required for civil and criminal actions. As soon as a problem or suspected incident is identified, Kroll’s experts develop an investigative strategy that addresses the issues and the client’s needs. This could include emergency steps to prevent any further damage and the identification of stakeholders and regulatory bodies that need to be informed of the matter. While our investigative accountants work to quantify the losses, our experienced team of former prosecutors, law enforcement personnel, financial analysts, computer forensics specialists and trained investigators identify the individuals or organizations responsible for the losses. Kroll works with the client to identify and gather evidence to support any subsequent civil, regulatory or criminal action.
