Fraud Prevention & Investigations
Every business is vulnerable to various forms of employee theft or embezzlement. ARA will work with the attorneys’ business, non profit clients and medical practice groups to assess their risk for fraud.

A fraud risk assessment offers organizations the opportunity to identify vulnerable areas, which can lead to theft or embezzlement, and provides solutions to mitigate the potential for fraud to occur. We will work with our lawyer partners’ clients to develop customized plans that offer proactive risk mitigation solutions.

If one of your clients suspects an employee of fraudulent behavior, the ARA team can handle the investigation from the initial engagement to the prosecution of the individual or individuals. Once the investigation is complete, the ARA team will work with the client to avoid the risk of fraud from occurring in the future.
