Fraud

Fraud Examination

Fraud examinations, internal investigations, depositions, court appearances and other legal, ethics, and dispute-related matters often require interviewing numerous witnesses and analyzing and presenting large quantities of technical information, all within rigid time constraints. BARR CPA LLC takes a lead role on these types of assignments. Our extensive experience allows us to understand the subtleties of financial issues the way attorneys understand nuances in the law. We may be retained by plaintiffs or defendants in civil or criminal litigation cases, or by corporate boards of directors, in-house counsel, or outside legal professionals.
