Every day, companies are facing new and more complex financial schemes designed to unjustly enrich the perpetrator and defraud investors. Such schemes are often investigated poorly and have a lack of independence, using either unqualified experts or internal staff that may skew the outcome. As a result, gaps in the investigation occur and are ultimately unable to withstand the test of a proper investigation in a legal or regulatory proceeding. Retaining Longleaf Technical will help mitigate such risk and maintain business integrity, thus protecting and preserving assets of the company and its reputation through our forensic accounting services.
