FVC2246. Accountant's Role in Corporate Investigations
A core theme of this year’s FVS Conference is that the forensic accounting profession is experiencing New Challenges but also offers Unlimited Opportunities. There is no singular path to success as a forensic accountant, and that is evidenced by the unique careers and experiences of this session’s panelists. Our speakers include a forensic accounting partner at an international public accounting firm, a forensic accounting practice leader at one of the largest global consulting firms, and the Unit Chief of the FBI Forensic Accountant Unit headquartered in Washington, DC. These three accomplished professionals will offer their perspectives about the forensic accounting profession and share experienced-based insights and best practices when conducting corporate investigations.
- Differentiate between the various paths to forensic accounting (public accounting, government, consulting, industry, etc.).
- Analyze the various circumstances that would require (or suggest) a forensic accountant to lead/support a corporate investigation.
- Identify the circumstances that may require the involvement of law enforcement in an investigation.
- Use best practices when conducting a corporate investigation based on technical skills, experience, and education.
