Customized Team Approach

Each engagement calls for a distinct and select group of professionals:

Forensic Accountants: Trained to look at the historical financial information, the projected financial information and make a determination as to whether it ‘makes sense’. We have the tools and the training to ask probing open ended questions and see if all of the facts make sense.

Experienced Business Experts: We draw on the expertise of professionals who have closed numerous transactions and more importantly, managed the results. Our team members are forensic accountants who have work experience in industry as C-Level executives. They bring a unique ‘business common sense’ to our due diligence team.

Private Investigators: Potential investors, business partners and owners who have a strategic interest in your business all need to be vetted. We can verify the business disclosures made and verify that the facts match the ‘hype’. Our licensed investigators add a level of assurance to your due diligence and mitigate risk.
