Forensic Accounting Services


When a controversy is threatening your business, it’s critical to act fast. You need to surround yourself with a team of professionals who can help keep you calm while confronting the situation. While each engagement for forensic accounting services may have a different degree of urgency, no matter the issue, we know our clients need us to expedite the process as efficiently and discreetly as possible.

At Mercadien, we provide forensic accounting services for a variety of controversial issues, including corporate fraud, money laundering, debtor restructuring and bankruptcy and insolvency work. Our clients come from all walks of life and include individuals, privately and publicly-held companies, government entities such as municipalities, parking authorities and school districts, financial institutions and C-suite executives.

We’ve handled all types of forensic accounting and fraud investigation engagements – from leading major, well-known corporate investigations; working on cases with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, various offices of Attorneys General, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and other government agencies; to uncovering different types of embezzlement schemes at small businesses or public entities. Our priority is to create a collaborative strategy with the client and counsel and then outline a targeted and cost-beneficial plan. You can always count on us being upfront and transparent – without surprises.

Our experience and insider industry knowledge tells us right away if we are the best people who can help you. That’s a benefit of being a nimble, regional firm with a specialized forensics team; there’s no arduous decision-making process and all of our many resources are at our fingertips. We have a strong referral base and if we can’t help you, rest assured, we will find someone who can.


When people come to us, they are usually very anxious, under duress and needing urgent resolution. It can be an unusually trying time for organizations and individuals. Our team understands this and will help you stay focused on your desired outcome. We are committed to responding promptly to our clients and proactively providing information, which helps to solidify a relationship of trust and reliability.

Over the years, we have developed sound methodologies and cost-effective strategies that help clients handle these difficult situations. We believe we are at a unique advantage because our team has a winning combination of business and consulting acumen. When it comes to forensic accounting services, skill and technical expertise are required to get to the root of the issue. What’s also required is being intuitive and having a strong read on people. Our experience over the years has given us that tool and we find it has been invaluable to our clients.

We also realize, when you engage an expert in forensic accounting services, that you are hiring that individual. It’s that person who will be on the stand to testify, who will sign the findings report, and who will need to be ready for opposing counsel’s argument. We recognize the inherent trust in choosing us. Our partners are closely involved in every case and we will always put forward the best-suited person to handle your needs.
