In addition to her experience as a federal agent, Kari is also a Certified Fraud Examiner and can handle many types of fraud examinations, reviews and compliance reviews. Kari specializes in SBA programs, including SBA-guaranteed loans, disaster loans, surety bonds, and set-aside government contracts.
We have experience working with whistleblowers and investigating cases brought by whistleblowers, including Qui Tams/False Claims Act cases. If you suspect your organization may have some vulnerability to a whistleblower complaint, we can help evaluate the vulnerabilities and try to resolve complaints before False Claims Act cases are filed or have you better prepared once they are filed.
We also have specialized experience in trial and litigation support.
Do you suspect internal vulnerabilities that leave your organization open to fraud or lawsuits? We can help. We offer training to companies, lenders and small businesses on how to prevent, detect and deter fraud. Training can be created for your specific needs. Examples include insider threats, fraud detection, government contracting, and financial statement fraud. Over the years, we have trained many accountants, auditors, attorneys, lenders, government contractors, employees, college students and law enforcement. We can tailor training to your needs.
We can work with you, your accountant, lawyer, and/or human resources office to train key employees/managers and/or large divisions of your organization. Past training participants include DCAA auditors, attorneys, SBA employees, Army Corps of Engineers employees, government contractors and other law enforcement officers. We would love to come speak to your organization!
