Question ID: 186585
I need the names of forensic accountants who have experience with
hedge funds, and has experience testifying in court.

This accountant must be from the east coast.  If this accountant is
from Pittsburgh, the price will be $100.  If the accountant/expert is
also referred within 48 hours, the price will be $200.

What I do not need are expert forensic accountants that do NOT have
experience in the hedge fund industry.  And I also do not need names
of the big accounting firms.  What would be useful are specific names
of accountants from reputable accounting firms.

Thank you in advance!

Hello Benfranklin-ga (haven't I heard that name somewhere before?).

I'm posting some names below that should be of interest.  They were
all recommended to me by someone with a lot of experience in the field
as accountants that meet your criteria.

The reason I am posting it here, as a clarification, rather than as an
answer, is that I have an unexpected matter to attend to that prevents
me from contacting these firms, and confirming that they do, in fact,
meet your criteria .  I was only able to get as far as the first firm
-- Ten Ecyk -- and they do seem to offer everything you need..  Since
you seem to be in a rush though, I wanted to get the info up here for
your consideration.

Good luck.
