Cohen Hamilton Steger & Co. is regularly retained to provide forensic accounting analyses in complex investigations. Corporations, special board committees, external counsel, insurance companies, and government departments and agencies turn to us because we have the expertise that comes from decades of collective experience working on some very challenging cases. So whether you are investigating allegations of internal or external wrongdoing, conducting a regulatory or special committee probe, a government inquiry or executing Mareva injunctions and Anton Piller orders, we have done it before. We know the ropes.
Accredited training is the starting point that lays the foundation for excellence, and when it comes to credentials our professionals have them. In addition to employing an investigative mentality as Chartered Professional Accountants (CPAs), five members of our forensic team are designated specialists in Investigative and Forensic Accounting (IFAs) and five are Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs).
Experience is a great teacher and collectively our forensic team has over 150 years of it. What that tells you is we have worked on a wide array of mandates across many different industries and jurisdictions. Our team has the depth of knowledge to tailor the proper approach and methodology to each situation, allowing us to conduct effective research, and analyze and organize the information for maximum impact and efficiency. We prepare clear, concise reports and affidavits and provide authoritative expert witness testimony in court as well as in hearings and mediations.
When your forensic accountant is testifying as your expert witness, you want to be certain that the work will meet the standards of the court and that the findings are presented in a clear and compelling manner. We deliver. Our team members have experience testifying as experts in the Federal Court of Canada as well as in the courts of Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, Manitoba and New Brunswick. We have also provided testimony in the United Kingdom and the British Virgin Islands courts and have testified as experts in domestic and international arbitrations.
