Investigations

Despite the best policies, procedures and prevention controls within a business, the reality is misconduct and wrong-doing can occur both inside and even outside businesses through key stakeholders.

Whether suspected early on or it is a long-time occurrence, intentional or not, the impact to a business can be far-reaching: financial distress, exposing the business to further risk, reputational damage and even penalties.

Getting to the core of any business misconduct or issue, or building a case for current and future litigation, can be as complex as it is unique and sensitive. A successful investigation and outcome must first understand what is at stake, the environment in which the business and its people operate, as well as regulatory landscape affecting the business.

From employee fraud and payroll issues, to anti-fraud and corruption, whistleblowing and modern slavery, Grant Thornton draws upon our technical expertise and experience in both tax, accounting, law enforcement and commercial investigations. Our teams include licensed forensic investigators with domestic and international experience to deliver high quality results, outcomes and evidence across the jurisdictions in which you operate.
