Catch Them Before They Catch You:
 

  • White Collar criminals rely on deception and the manipulation of trust in order to illegally enrich themselves, often causing severe financial damage to victims. The majority of these frauds are committed by employees, and statistics reveal that less than 10% of perpetrators had been convicted of a previous crime.  
     
  • To prevent or uncover such cases of white collar fraud, a company requires specialist accountants and financial analysts who possess an intimate understanding of accounting and legal processes.
     
  • Horwath Forensics is uniquely positioned to offer such specialist services to you and your company. Within our team, we have accumulated substantial experience from extensive financial and forensic accounting investigations across a variety of industries.
