Charlotte Forensic Accounting Experts Help Businesses Protect their Interests

North Carolina forensic accounting firm helps support commercial litigation, quantifies economic damages, and investigates financial fraud

Charlotte, NC is much like the panther mascot of its pro football team: a stealthy cat, whose hunting prowess is underrated, but impressive. Charlotte has grown quietly over the last several decades to be the most populous city in the Carolinas and the sixth largest in the American South. The city’s success is not just a matter of demographics; Charlotte has flourished economically, attracting major banks and numerous tech companies. Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and Truist are Charlotte’s biggest financial catches, but Ally Financial, U.S. Bank, TD Bank, and Silicon Valley Bank have also fallen into Charlotte’s web, making her the second largest banking center in the United States after New York City. With that ranking come high standards for performance and consequences when performance falls short.

North American Forensic Accounting offers expert services that aid in commercial litigation, insurance & contract disputes, financial fraud investigation, and much more. Our certified experts draw on decades of experience related to forensic accounting, business valuations, investigations, risk management, and compliance. This expertise enables us to support various types of commercial and civil litigation, advise on transactions, test regulatory compliance, and assess risk.

Industry-specific knowledge drives in-depth inquiries

  • Insurance

Our practical experience enables us to scrutinize business records more critically and perform revealing interviews with your staff. In this way, we bring vulnerabilities to light, so we can propose effective remedies.

It’s impossible to engage in commerce without an occasional dispute. But when such disputes occur, you’ll quickly learn that Charlotte is not Mayberry. Your company might find itself up against a powerful corporation bent on winning at any cost.
