Forensic Accounting Investigations – Engel and Engel LLP

Finding the facts

“We apply specialized investigatory techniques to separate fact from fiction.”

Financial Sleuths

The complexities of today’s business transactions, combined with the prevalence of computers in business operations, have resulted in a proliferation of accounting and business records. Utilizing specialized investigatory techniques, Engel & Engel, LLP can efficiently and effectively pierce through layers of documents to discover the facts vital to building a convincing case.

Search for the Truth

The truth is often obscured by manipulated and erroneous information buried in volumes of business and accounting records. In conducting our investigations, we apply cutting edge investigatory techniques to separate fact from fiction and reconstruct a truthful picture of the relevant financial events. Thus, we maintain our objectivity throughout the engagement and act as advocates for the truth.

Working smarter, not harder

Meeting the challenges created by daunting stacks of records often requires a pragmatic approach. We eliminate time consuming tasks by utilizing investigatory techniques designed to quickly evaluate the accuracy of information and test analytical theories. By working efficiently, we can dedicate our resources to investigating those avenues critical to the case.
