Deloitte’s Forensic and Dispute Services
We provide both proactive and reactive fraud, accounting and computer forensic investigation services. Our forensic services division specialises in all areas of commercial crime. Deloitte’s Forensic and Dispute Services practice is composed of a diverse group of practitioners – MBSs, Certified Accountants, Certified Fraud Examiners, statisticians, online and Internet research professionals, intelligence analysts and computer forensic specialists. We also employ former senior law enforcement officials and agents from police services and other government agencies.
We seek to understand the unique aspects of each case, its underlying issues and fact, to help determine the best approach. We then bring to bear the collective knowledge, experience and judgment of our colleagues in other Deloitte practices (Security & Privacy, Tax and Legal, Data Analytics) and the larger business community to help support our client’s position in a case. Most importantly, we are able to articulate our findings in an organised and persuasive manner, whether in the form of a written report or live testimony in court.
Deloitte’s tools and methodologies for investigating fraud and corruption are currently at the cutting-edge of developments in forensic investigations. We are able to provide significant support in areas of procurement irregularities, corruption, fraud, theft, conflicts of interest and money laundering. We are able to custom design procurement data analytics databases for clients, enabling the pro-active identification of potential irregularities in your procurement and finances divisions.
We provide comprehensive service including the identification of possible irregularities, the investigation of irregularities, including the collection of evidence, advising on asset recovery strategies and the preparation of case dockets for submission to authorities. We provide experienced expert witness testimony in disciplinary, civil and criminal proceedings.
