Forensic and Investigative Services

Do you have the investigative talent on your team to clearly state your case? Aprio’s Forensic and Investigative team, led by Nicole Ponziani, CFE CECI CCE, has years of experience working with attorneys and clients in developing solutions through proprietary models and the gathering of necessary supporting documentation for use as evidence in the investigation of alleged “bad acts”.  Her involvement includes the handling of internal and criminal investigations through subject interviews and tracing of assets.

The multidisciplinary team provides clients with personally tailored services by bringing together a deep understanding of the issues at hand which enables them to bridge the gaps between criminal, civil and otherwise complex investigative matters. The Forensic and Investigative team works closely with both in-house, general and special counsel, as well as regulators and outside counsel, to provide the individualized work product as required by the courts.

At Aprio, we work to minimize the impact that a disruption may have on you or your client’s business operations. The Forensics and Investigative Services team’s expertise in getting beneath the surface enables us to reach solutions efficiently and effectively and provide evidence that is clear, understandable and withstand the rigors of court.
