INVESTIGATIONS

Corporate fraud is in the news on a daily basis. Aside from the obvious financial impact, the pervasiveness of fraud in the corporate sector, as well as the government, has taken a toll on investor confidence and the morale of average citizens. In difficult economic times, fraud is statistically more likely to occur, and companies are wise to proactively review security procedures and make corrections where necessary. When business is booming, indicators of fraud are often ignored. No matter the economic climate, allegations of fraud should always be thoroughly investigated.

Gryphon has close to three decades of corporate and insurance fraud investigation experience. We work with clients to both detect and investigate fraud allegations – and to assist in preventing fraud before it occurs. Gryphon’s experience includes cases involving financial statement fraud, insurance fraud, executive misconduct, employee malfeasance, kickback and embezzlement schemes, theft of company data or property, and many other forms of nefarious activities.

Our team is highly experienced and diligent when it comes to rooting out fraud allegations and gathering other intelligence in a variety of scenarios. We continue to work with many corporate and insurance clients and their legal representation to uncover key facts and resolve matters relating to complex fraud and other cases.
