Forensic Accounting and Financial Disputes

We provide forensic accounting and expert services in relation to concerns of fraud, bribery, corruption, money laundering and other forms of financial misconduct. Our forensic evidence is regularly used to assess damages and to support both criminal and civil recovery proceedings, as well as disclosures to regulators and law enforcement agencies around the globe.

Economic Damages Analysis

Kroll's economists help businesses through the course of disputes and investigations by providing critical damages analyses and expert testimony across a range of economic issues and disputes.

We have significant experience across sectors vulnerable to class action and mass tort claims, including the automotive, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and non-profit sectors. We also offer full-service competition and antitrust advisory.

Kroll’s experts provide robust financial, economic and valuation analyses throughout each stage of the dispute process and present our conclusions and findings in a clear, compelling and credible manner. We have provided independent expert testimony on damages in such matters in a variety of court and arbitral forums in various jurisdictions.


Our work in this area has included a wide variety of large and small public and private company contexts across a range of industries and includes cross-border disputes.

Kroll’s economists also assist clients with competition damages claims and market investigations. We help clients with core competition economics issues such as market delineation exercises, market power assessments, merger simulation modeling, and advice on anti-competitive agreements, merger clearances and state aid issues.

Our experts are also able to estimate the extent of any potential overcharge from a cartel and consider the scope of any pass-on effects.


Capital Markets, Financial Securities, Banking and Shareholder Disputes

As the largest valuation firm and a leader in valuing complex debt, equity and derivative instruments, we are uniquely qualified to analyze and quantify complex securities, derivatives, unique trading strategies and financial transactions in a dispute context. Our professionals provide consulting support across the entire lifecycle of securities investigations and litigation matters, including initial case evaluation, discovery, risk assessments, expert reports, and testimony and damages analysis.

Kroll's experts also advise on a wide range of matters arising from terminated M&A deals, post-closing disputes, hostile takeover bids, activist shareholder campaigns, public and private financing transactions and securities litigation.


In disputes involving public companies, our experts perform event studies to assist in measuring the economic effects of a triggering event or set of events on the share price of the listed firm, for example, in cases involving alleged accounting misstatements and fraud involving the company. Kroll’s economists can undertake detailed event studies, identify relevant benchmarks, recreate share prices ‘but for’ the events, and perform detailed portfolio and claimant modeling to assess the extent of losses incurred by investors during the course of the event.

For regulated firms, our Financial Services Regulation and Compliance team provides assistance to develop, implement and manage global compliance and regulatory consulting programs.
