Case Highlight

A large retail chain suspected a purchasing agent of receiving kickbacks. A Klink & Co. team, led by a former prosecutor, began an investigation by conducting interviews with knowledgeable executives and employees. The forensic accountants on the team studied invoices and company records discovering the purchasing agent had embezzled millions. Using that information, our research analysts determined the guilty purchasing agent opened a Swiss bank account and purchased a million-dollar house. Finally, our computer forensics experts imaged and analyzed computer data, revealing a long-standing personal and criminal relationship between the vendor and the purchasing agent.
