Forensic investigation & compliance

Harnessing cutting-edge technology in disputes and investigations.

At Mazars, we handle complex investigations and conflict resolution assignments worldwide. This includes determining and documenting relevant facts and events, analyzing and drawing conclusions about the impact of financial information, and providing assistance with negotiations.

The increase in regulations and a greater focus on compliance are key factors behind the rise in investigations related to areas such as fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other financial crimes. Disputes and investigations require discretion and expertise, as organizations seek to limit damage to their reputation and finances.

Our Approach

We take pride in our ability to conduct in-depth investigations while remaining sensitive to companies' concerns regarding reputation, confidentiality, and minimizing disruptions. For accounting investigations, our qualified accountants and fraud specialists have extensive experience in fraud, regulatory investigations, tax investigations, and corruption cases, including those under Brazil's Law 12.846, the US FCPA, or the UK Bribery Act (UKBA).

Once issues are identified, we engage experts who can address problems such as quantifying and recovering losses, deterring and preventing future similar issues. We can also provide training for internal teams and assist with other proactive work, such as risk profiling, internal control assessments, fraud awareness courses, and crime surveys. We have extensive experience in the specialized discipline of continuous integrity monitoring.

Mazars' forensic technology team has cutting-edge data analysis tools and algorithms at its disposal to provide data mining and forensic analysis services in connection with complex investigations and conflict resolution assignments. Data from various sources, including data from mobile phones and 'deleted' data, can be centrally stored in our facilities as a forensic image, facilitating the swift identification of problematic transactions and standing up in court. Password recovery and data decryption are available as specialized services that can provide additional vital evidence.
