We provide consulting services to parties dealing with complex issues that require financial expertise. We look forward to exploring how we can assist you and your clients.

The Arts & Non-Profit Organizations

Culture and Arts are essential to the development of a successful community. We take pride in representing artists and non-profit organizations focused on improving the cultural and life experience in our society.

We work closely with actors, musicians, bands, cosmetologists and beauty consultants, landscapers and artists. Whether we are helping with a brand-new career – setting up legal entities, creating a tax structure, working with other professionals to get things set up properly – or taking on an established professional, we are here to help you through the complicated financial issues so you can do what you do best, which will undoubtedly make the world a better place!

We provide accounting and consulting services to non-profit organizations, many at discounted rates and in some cases pro-bono. We believe strongly that our work with non-profit organizations helps them, which in turn supports all types of causes. We are there to set up non-profit entities, prepare budgets, tax filings, and work with the executive director and other staff to ensure that donors and other interested parties receive reliable accounting information.

Insolvency & Restructuring Consulting

Grobstein Teeple’s  professionals provide specialized expertise necessary to support parties involved in restructuring and insolvency related projects. We assist companies facing financial difficulties by working closely with internal accounting personnel and counsel to provide accurate, reliable, and unbiased guidance and information. Our professionals can assist with financial reporting, working with or for lenders regarding secured debt, and management to improve performance. In the event it is not possible to restructure, GT can help prepare for a bankruptcy filing.

In the course of restructuring engagements we act in the following roles:

  • Financial Advisor to the Troubled Company
  • Financial Advisor to the Secured Creditor/Lender
  • Chief Restructuring Officer
  • Interim Chief Financial Officer

GT has extensive experience in the post-petition aspect of case administration. Our years of acting as Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 trustees, and representing various parties in bankruptcy matters, has given us the hands-on capabilities to assist with almost any financial issue that may come about in a case. Our professionals have been involved in either the fiduciary or financial advisory capacity in thousands of bankruptcy cases over the past 20 years. Our roles and services frequently involve the following:

  • Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Trustee

Fraud Investigation

In either the prosecution or defense of white collar crime, our fraud investigation experts have the technical know-how to detect fraudulent activity, and document and present the evidence and findings. We supplement our years of experience in such investigations with cutting-edge software to examine immense amounts of data, detecting anomalies and unusual trends, and reporting the results in an easy to understand format. Our team of CPAs and Certified Fraud Examiners have produced exceptional outcomes that have led to positive results for government agencies as well as individuals charged with committing white collar crimes. GT works closely with counsel to assist in the analysis of financial information and provide meaningful and effective results. Our services include:

  • Fraudulent Transfers
  • Money Laundering
  • Ponzi Schemes
  • Affinity Schemes
  • Foreign Corrupt Policy Act Violations
  • Asset Misappropriation
  • Financial Statement Fraud

Litigation Consulting & Dispute Resolution

Litigation consulting and expert witness services require patience, attention to detail, and a methodical approach to presenting the financial aspects of the case.  With an eye on ultimate testimony, our professionals work to clearly set forth the facts and findings and present them in an articulate way that a judge or jury would understand. This can be challenging when dealing with complex financial schemes. Our professionals have a successful track record, having testified in state and federal courts, before federal grand juries, at depositions and at arbitrations.

When parties can’t agree and the issues are of a financial nature, we can help come to a reasonable resolution. GT can analyze the terms of an agreement, including post-transaction formula reconciliations, earn-out provisions, and other financial disputes.

Forensic Accounting

Forensic Accounting involves the reconstruction of financial records, usually in the context of a dispute, civil or criminal investigation, or in order to clean up poorly maintained historical records.  Often the starting point for record reconstruction is an inaccurate or incomplete set of books.  GT can make quick determinations regarding the reliability of the available data.  We then work to obtain source documentation from third parties in order to reconstruct the information and “tell the story” through reliable financial reports.  The following are issues that we can assist with:

  • Partner/Shareholder Disputes
  • Whistleblower Allegations
  • Embezzlement Investigations
  • Asset Misappropriation/Defalcation
  • General Ledger Reconstruction
  • Regulatory Investigations
  • Transaction Disputes

Forensic Technology

In today’s world, litigation often hinges on electronically stored information (ESI). Our forensic technology team has the experience and skills to make sure that the relative sensitive ESI is protected. We use the same tools the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) uses to secure and analyze data. We maintain chain of custody protocol to ensure the propriety of the information for investigations and possible court proceedings. If your data has already been exposed, we will guide you to the most effective solution. From digital forensics to data mining, data analysis, custom report preparation, and court testimony, our professionals will expertly guide you through the challenges at each step from investigation through resolution.
