The terms “forensic accounting” and “litigation support” are often used interchangeably. Forensic accounting has applications outside the litigation arena, but most often is applied in legal cases. For example, forensic accounting for divorce engagements involves valuing assets and liabilities, and determining the parties’ income. Forensic accountant consulting involves identifying transactions that “don’t fit”, sometimes finding hidden assets, and often to “follow the money.”
