Auditors are often said to be “a watchdog but not a bloodhound”. However, auditors may be engaged as a bloodhound in certain instances where there is suspicion of embezzlement, fraud, financial reporting fraud or accounting manipulation.
These cases may call for auditors to be involved in forensic investigations to get to the bottom of the matter. In cases where a forensic investigation resulted in litigation, we have the experience and expertise to act as expert witness in court to explain and support evidence unearthed during the forensic investigation and to provide a clear position on financial matters.
Crowe Malaysia has special expertise in this area due to the experience and specialist qualification [Certified Fraud Examiners (CFE) qualification from the US] of our audit partners who specialize in forensic investigations.
