Entities around the globe are increasingly faced with complex business disputes and challenges, including litigation. Hundreds of billions of dollars a year are put at risk or are lost by companies victimised by fraud, embroiled in complex litigation or business disputes, or facing accusations of financial mismanagement or malfeasance. Instances of financial statement errors and restatements have grown over the past few years, and every organisation is vulnerable to fraud risk. Theft of assets, including intangible property, can lead to substantial loss or commercial disadvantage and corporate failure can be the result of such losses or unmitigated fraud risk.
Competitors, shareholders, regulators and even employees present today’s businesses with a multitude of potentially reputation-damaging legal actions ranging from anti-corruption litigation to large-scale investor action suits. They can occur in multiple jurisdictions and extend their scope to any part of the world.
To survive and thrive in this environment, companies and their legal counsel can seek assistance from sophisticated forensic investigators and dispute consulting professionals who can help reconstruct accounting and business records, acquire, preserve and analyse data, and provide the detailed analysis necessary to uncover essential facts and insights.
Deloitte’s Forensic and Dispute Services practice is comprised of a diverse group of practitioners — chartered and certified public accountants, chartered financial analysts, certified fraud examiners, business intelligence research professionals, former law enforcement officials and computer forensic and data analytics specialists.
