Accounting & Forensic Services

Consultants with CRA’s Forensic & Cyber Investigations practice advised counsel to a brokerage firm in a dispute involving the alleged theft of trade secrets by an employee who left the firm for a rival brokerage. Our consultants provided forensic analysis of digital information and testimony to help prove liability in the dispute. An arbitration panel ultimately ordered payment of more than $1 million to settle the dispute.
