• Supplier under reporting of refunds due to the retailer for returned goods.
• Business partner redirecting potential business from retailer locations to their own locations to avoid revenue sharing agreement.
• Marketing director embezzlement of travel and entertainment funds, as well as, receiving kickbacks from a public relations firm
• Theft of millions of dollars of inventory by installer/delivery company
• Overbilling of personnel located at a contracted call center
• Underreporting of revenue to business partners, landlords and the like.

We have also been retained in several litigation cases concerning retailers including for example:
• Fraudulent misrepresentation of financial results from a seller of a chain of convenience store/service station locations to the buyer. The litigation resulted in a judgment for the buyer of in excess of $160 million.
• Investigation and testimony of an overstatement of a retailer’s inventory in excess of $45 million to a debtor in possession lender.
