Management and board members hope to never hear the words fraud, misappropriation, embezzlement, and/or Ponzi-schemes in reference to their company, as such events can have a devastating effect on operations and shareholder value, both directly or indirectly. Capstone professionals assist clients in investigating and addressing financial malfeasance concerns. We routinely assist clients in both internal investigations, shadow investigations paralleling external enforcement agencies, and in litigation involving difficult and complex financial issues, both in the U.S. and cross-border.
Capstone understands that careful and discrete internal investigations are essential to a company or public agency restoring corporate integrity, shareholder confidence or in assuring that financial malfeasance is taken seriously and has been fully uncovered. Our services include investigations into securities fraud, breaches of fiduciary duty, misappropriation of trade-secrets, and all manner of financial frauds.
Our personnel have been involved in a myriad of financial statement fraud investigations and have worked with a variety of regulators, including the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and Department of Justice (DOJ). As a result, we are well-positioned to assist in investigating alleged financial statement fraud, addressing suspicions of embezzlement, Ponzi-schemes, theft of trade secrets, misappropriation by employees or executives, and other financial improprieties. Capstone’s senior professionals have reported to audit committees, special boards, and independent directors, as well as assisted clients facing criminal charges, civil proceedings, and regulatory enforcement actions.
