Working with Attorneys in Fraud Examinations
Every fraud examination is unique. As a result, the investigative techniques used often differ – including the parties involved in the investigation. For some investigations, the fraud examiner will perform the majority of the work, while in others a team of professionals will divide substantial roles in the process. One of the most common and important relationships in fraud examinations is the one between the fraud examiner and the attorneys involved, including inside counsel, external counsel and prosecutors.
This course examines the role of fraud examiners and attorneys in an investigation, as well as the best way to develop those relationships in various circumstances. It also explores important topics including the involvement of prosecutors in a fraud examination, the process of gathering and handling evidence and communicating with and reporting to legal counsel.
