K2 Intelligence conducts sensitive investigations into fraud, corruption, and wrongdoing, each of which can lead to loss, regulatory censure, and reputational damage. We conduct financial investigations in the context of actual or potential regulatory scrutiny or disputes and litigation support, working closely with in-house and external legal counsel.
Our unique approach to financial investigations combines technical forensic accounting and an investigative accounting skill set with cutting-edge forensic technology and the ability to identify and obtain relevant external intelligence and information. We leverage powerful analytical tools that can dissect large volumes of financial data (both structured and unstructured) and the latest forensic technology solutions to effectively analyze communications and documentation within an organization. Our forensic investigators are skilled interviewers and able to obtain maximum value from interviews that may be conducted at different stages of the investigation.
Our diverse global team of specialists, including certified/chartered forensic accountants, legal experts, corporate investigators, and former regulators, determine how the wrongdoing arose, the impact on the business, and the losses that might occur as a result, as well assisting in mitigation and recovery steps.
