How Marcum Can Help

Working with Counsel and Clients

To assist in the evaluation of the cost/benefit of potential litigation at the onset of an engagement, Marcum provides counsel with an early assessment of potential damages and assists in determining the key documents and other information to request. Throughout the case, we will continue to assist counsel, define the business issues of the matter, and investigate the facts. We also provide support for the deposition of key fact witnesses and opposing experts and critique and analyze opposing expert reports and economic damage calculations.

More Than Expert Testimony

In addition to serving as expert witnesses, our professionals also perform fraud investigations and serve as independent arbitrators, trustees, monitors, receivers, and special referees.

Key Components of a Fraud Investigation

Legal counsel requires experienced investigators to help build a compelling case by:

  • Examining and analyzing relevant business records.
  • Reconstructing books and records.
  • Interviewing parties to determine what has occurred.
  • Quantifying the financial impact.
