Depending on the type of case, a fraud detection expert witness typically has a background and expertise in forensic accounting, financial forensics, computer science, security, and/or fiduciary duty. For certain cases, clients may request a certified fraud examiner, which is an individual that has been tested and has knowledge in the primary areas of fraud examination: financial transactions and fraud schemes, law, investigation, fraud prevention and deterrence.
Fraud can violate civil law or criminal law. Common examples of fraud include waste, improper payments, money laundering, terrorist financing, and cyber security. Litigation support by a fraud detection expert witness could include documentation review, expert report preparation, expert opinion, expert testimony, computer forensics, and/or courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may require a specialist with prior expert witness testimony experience. In addition, clients often seek fraud detection or fraud investigation experts for pre-litigation consulting work.
