• Litigation, Fraud, and Forensic

Full-scale litigation support.

In the business world, disputes and differing forms of malfeasance can crop up at any time, despite a contractor’s best efforts. This is especially true in the federal contracting arena, where companies face a voluminous set of complex and ever-changing compliance requirements along with additional competitive forces, stakeholders, and marketplace conditions.
 
When these issues arise, BDO is there to assist our clients in any way we can, including dispute resolution, risk management, forensic investigations, and regulatory compliance. BDO’s goal is to minimize the potential impact to the organization by delivering an expedient resolution, whether it be with a prime contractor or subcontractor, government auditor, contracting officer, suspension and debarment official, or other agency personnel. BDO regularly operates under attorney-client privilege or protective order to shield its review and maintain the confidentiality of any sensitive matters or information.
 
Where mitigation techniques, successful rebuttal, or settlement may not be achievable, BDO professionals also provide full-scale litigation support across a variety of government contracting matters. We combine the necessary financial and accounting background with unique experience in government contracting to support litigation and investigations across virtually every industry.
