About Us

Forensic Restitution has developed an enviable reputation in the areas of fraud detection and prevention, data analysis and recovery, insurance claims, cybercrime, fidelity guarantee and business interruption claims. We are also leaders in preparing for, and testifying in, criminal and civil actions and disciplinary hearings.

As a truly independent company with internal shareholding, we assure our clients of no conflicts of interest. Apart from our work as investigators and analysts, we offer our clients in-depth staff training in detecting and preventing fraud.

Our close association with legal firms, loss adjustors, private investigators and truth verification and lie detection companies enables us to offer you an holistic approach to all aspects of detection, verification and litigation.

With our vast financial knowledge we are able to review books of accounts to identify the footprints of fraud. Our state of the art computer forensic laboratory allows for the imaging of electronic data (computers, mobile phones, etc.)  and the extraction of data for use in disciplinary hearings or criminal procedures.

Recent successes include the identification of an error in a production system, resulting in a proven $5 million saving per year. We have also been responsible for successful prosecutions of white collar crime perpetrators. Our claims formulation procedure resulted in the successful recovery of $1 million for a client that had been defrauded in a salami skimming operation.

Dave and I recently worked together on a complex project related to two holdback calculations. His understanding of the transaction and drive to get to the supporting facts were excellent - and successful. I'd certainly work with Dave again!

Dave has an impressive combination of forensic technology expertise, investigative skills, experience and business knowledge. He is a very persistent, client-focused investigator who quickly grasps what drives a particular business and the significance of those drives to client engagement.

I have worked with Stan on very sensitive professional matters and have found him to be both honest and patient, characteristics that are critical for success in the business world. Through interaction with Stan, I've learned the value in delivering a high level of service and connecting with my clients on a personal basis.

Simon is a complete package in himself with punctuality ingrained in his character. He is an amazing presenter with the capability of explaining forensic concepts with ease and with attention-grabbing examples that would imprint the concept(s) in anyone's mind. He is open to new ideas and more importantly, pushes people to learn/train themselves for their growth and benefit.

I have worked with Stan on two occasions where he was engaged by the organization I worked for to do forensic audits. During both these projects Stan demonstrated an exceptionally high integrity and knowledge and was able to do his research without compromising confidentiality. Both these cases were in a highly sensitive political environment. I recommend Stan to provide a professional but also environmentally sensitive Forensic Audit for any organization.

Dave is not only the leader in his field in South Africa but has a deserved international reputation with clients and law enforcement agencies worldwide. Dealing with excellence and integrity, I have no hesitation in recommending Dave for any task, both pro-active and reactive.
