Forensic Accounting & Litigation Support Services

BKHM's litigation services department provides professional services to clients engaged in legal disputes or determinations.  These services include forensic accounting, fraud detection and prevention, assistance with discovery matters, consultation and expert witness testimony.  We provide litigation services in both federal and state courts in a wide variety of cases including marital dissolution, shareholder disputes, class action litigation, personal injury, contract claims, business damages, lost profits, business and contract disputes and criminal cases.

Our clients can include both litigants and attorneys, and our services are provided in pre-litigation matters or throughout the course of filed litigation.  We are regularly retained in civil, criminal and family law (divorce) matters and often participate in the development of pleadings and in the discovery process.  Our team has Certified Fraud Examiners with extensive experience conducting forensic investigations for civil and criminal matters.

Expert Witness Engagements

Expert witness engagements include any situation where a member of the firm renders a professional opinion in deposition or at trial.  The expert's opinion and work product are subject to discovery and are open to cross-examination.

Litigation Consulting Engagements

In litigation consulting engagements, our firm is usually retained by the attorney and all work product and opinions are privileged (the opposition doesn't get to see it) and are provided solely to assist the attorney in the legal handling of the case.
