Fraud investigation

Dealing with fraud and financial investigations requires more than technical know-how. It requires speed, sensitivity and discretion. Finegan Gibson understands the importance of reacting quickly and confidentially to a crisis. We appreciate the need to stop illegal activity, safeguard your company's assets and reputation, arrive at a resolution with as little disruption as possible to the regular flow of business, and prevent reoccurrences.

We have experience in resolving a variety of complex white-collar crimes involving:

  • Misappropriation of company funds
  • False expense reporting¬†
  • Procurement fraud
  • Payroll fraud
  • Fraudulent insurance claims

We investigate fraud for all types of organisation but are frequently called upon by the voluntary and community sector due to our experience in the third sector. We can assist you in the following ways:

  • Quickly establishing what went wrong and developing a cost effective solution
  • Collecting and securing vital evidence
  • Obtaining information that the fraudster hoped to hide
  • Conducting interviews with witnesses and suspects
  • Identifying control weaknesses
  • Investigating the quantum of the loss, including unforeseen losses
  • Reconstructing damaged or incomplete accounting records
  • Identifying potential recoveries, including from others less directly involved in the fraud, such as accomplices who laundered the proceeds
  • Preparation of reports to support insurance claims, the initiation of civil proceedings or criminal complaints to law enforcement

Due diligence

Finegan Gibson has worked closely with corporate vendors and purchasers for many years to meet the needs of private equity houses, banks and corporate acquirers for authoritative due diligence and investigation services.

In addition to full due diligence investigations, we also offer a tailored service which includes:

  • abbreviated reports
  • pre-bid support work
  • reviews of vendor due diligence

Our specialism in the voluntary and community sector has resulted in us being engaged to provide financial due diligence services on a regular basis for charities who have decided to merge or work collaboratively. In these cases we seek to identify any actual or potential threats to the proposed venture enabling Board members to make informed decisions.
