As part of managing your overall business risk, one needs to manage one’s risk for fraud and related risks
What do we mean when we talk about forensic services?
This covers forensic investigations for clients for the purposes of disciplinary, criminal and/or civil legal proceedings and for making appropriate recommendations to clients as to remedial action.
This can include preparing dossiers for disciplinary tribunals and, if required, initiating disciplinary proceedings for clients or giving evidence in the hearing.
The management of risk and implementation of robust corporate governance has become an increasingly important aspect of global business. While many companies are required by law, regulations or stakeholders to apply these processes and procedures, even more elect to do so as part of a successful business strategy.
Our aim is to leverage our expertise and sector knowledge to help organisations meet their governance, risk and assurance objectives. We provide internal audit, risk advisory, corporate governance and regulatory advice and compliance.
We encourage all our clients to adopt a zero tolerance approach to fraud and to report alleged fraud to the SAPS and other law enforcement agencies, even if not obliged to do so, we can prepare a criminal docket for you for the purposes of laying charges in a matter and liaising with law enforcement.
Having a sound understanding of the key legal issues involved, we partner with attorneys to provide litigation support in those areas identified as being critical for civil litigation or arbitration proceedings.
