Forensic Accounting 
Our firm has gained a strong reputation in investigative and forensic accounting.

• Forensic Accounting is based on a unique combination of knowledge, practice,
   experience and specialized training. Members of our staff who deal with
   investigative auditing have cumulative experience of over twenty years. Special
   auditing aims at detecting and preventing embezzlement, fraud and financial
   irregularities both in Israel and abroad.

• The firm has been involved in exposing dozens of events leading to successful
   prosecution. 

One of our partners is a certified fraud examiner (CFE) from the U.S. Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.

Our office maintains strict confidentiality concerning any involvement with investigative auditing. This field requires secrecy and confidentiality. 
We maintain discretion and apply a “need to know” approach throughout the entire process, from referral through to the various stages of the investigation, and confidentiality with respect to its results. 
For that reason, we strictly avoid any publicity about our activities. It should be emphasized that financial irregularities and similar events in corporations are a delicate area, that require obtaining legal and financial advice. Confidentiality is the cornerstone of all those who work in this field.
