Defense of Federal Criminal Fraud Charges
Axium was retained by defendant’s counsel to investigate and defend the government’s allegations in a major criminal prosecution of fraud, kickbacks, and other improprieties. Axium was a critical part of the defense team and performed a wide range of substantive procedures during the grand jury investigation and the subsequent criminal trial. We conducted extensive forensic accounting analyses of accounting and financial records of the company at the center of the allegations, reviewed voluminous email data, and listened to and reviewed transcripts of government-recorded conversations. Axium located and interviewed dozens of former and current employees and affiliates of the company. Axium also provided background intelligence on government witnesses and forensic accounting services to assist counsel in their examinations of witnesses. Axium provided important testimony of findings at trial.
