03.3: Engagements & Fees for Service
A forensic investigative accountant cannot predict how much time is necessary to complete the scope of work involved in the engagement in order to unravel the complexities of the financial data to prove or disprove wrongdoing. There are phases to our work, as it is usually difficult to determine the complete scope of work in the initial phase.
Fees will vary depending on the type of services performed, the area of expertise, the geographical region the work to be performed and a myriad of other variables. Our goal is to provide our clients with useful and valuable information and services.
After we have examined the available documentation and consider the scope of the work, we will provide the client with an hourly rate and work plan. We will not begin work on the engagement until the client has agreed and signed a contract identifying the scope of work and corresponding rates and fees. In some cases it may be appropriate to agree to the work to be performed in phases so that a provisional work plan can be reconsidered as matters develop.
Depending on the engagement a minimum retainer is required and will be based on the complexity of the engagement. We may require a deposit prior to beginning any work, with the balance due in full prior to any report provided to the retaining client.
For engagements with shorter deadlines or unusual circumstances, we may require the entire fee up front.
Fees will not be dependent on whether the case is won or lost or whether or not money is recovered or awarded in the case.
