Forensic Accounting

A branch of accounting that uses investigative skills to determine the accuracy of a company's financial statements in a legal dispute. The word forensic means "suitable for a court of law." Thus, forensic accountants are used in fraud investigations, breach of contract disputes, and other disagreements that require court action. Forensic accountants are often retained by one or both parties in such dispute to bolster their cases.
