• “Fraud at my company? Initiate legal proceedings against a customer or supplier? That’s something I don’t even want to think about! What can I do to avoid the worst?”

Forensics & Litigation Services

It’s not a question of if your company will ever be hacked or taken advantage of, but when this will happen, and how you will respond. In 29.3% of all cases of fraud or corruption, this can be attributed to inadequate internal control systems or because the rules that were initially agreed to were not complied with - or not complied with strictly enough (20%). By a company’s own employees, mind you. The ensuing costs can be enormous, let alone the reputational damage suffered.

Of course, we don’t want to make your blood run cold, but you can’t take enough preventive measures with regard to risk management and fraud detection systems. After all, nobody wants to lose his or her hard-earned profits to the winds!

Weak spots and risk management

What may appear to you as water-tight, may look like Swiss cheese to the bad guy. An expert will approach your security or control systems from a different perspective, while what is noticed by a legal expert will differ from what an internal IT or other auditor will bring to light, or a financial expert. Together, we will detect your weak spots, refine your control systems and make your risks easier to manage. With a programme that is tailored to your situation! Don’t let yourself be deceived: turnkey solutions don’t exist, as we have learned from our many years of experience in a vast array of disciplines and branches of industry.

Substantiate and convince

Have you never brought a dispute to court? Never say never. If it does happen - and we sincerely hope it won’t - you should know that you will need an expert to calculate a complex damage or other claim. Our pluridisciplinary teams are fully versed in accounting and contract law and know everything there is to know about legal and arbitration procedures, even at international level, thanks to our worldwide network.

Your lawyer is always welcome to call us, because two (or more) heads are smarter than one when it comes to pragmatically convincing the court of your financial or other arguments.
