Corporate Fraud Investigations
Corporate fraud leads not only to financial (material) losses, but also causes harm of a non-financial nature. For example, the decline in product quality through the hidden use of cheaper and lower quality components damages the company’s reputation.
Investigations into corporate fraud are an opportunity to nip at the root of violations that can lead to the decline, if not the collapse of the business. Such investigations are carried out by Forensic specialists, and are aimed at:
- identification of the facts of fraud or confirmation of their absence;
- search for the perpetrators;
- collection of evidence to bring these persons to disciplinary, administrative or criminal liability;
- recovery of compensation for damage caused.
Types of corporate fraud
Corporate fraud is carried out in three areas:
- Assignment of property by company employees
- Corporate corruption.
