“Passion works here”
South African companies experience more fraud and bribery than their counterparts elsewhere in the world. They are being hit by a higher incidence in most categories of economic crime — bribery, corruption, asset misappropriation, procurement fraud, human resources fraud, money laundering, tax fraud, and financial statement fraud.
Bribery and corruption had been the fastest growing economic crime category in South Africa since 2011.
Larger companies have more resources to prevent and respond to this threat by implementing various fraud prevention strategies. Smaller companies though may find it more challenging to prevent and act adequately to these crimes due to resource restraints.
Fin-Law’s objective is to provide a professional but cost-effective service to these businesses to prevent and investigate various crimes. Although a small company, Fin-Law is associated with very experienced and pre-selected forensic experts in various fields to ensure the best possible service at reasonable rates.
Fin-Law has its main office in Paarl, Western Cape but offers its services country-wide.
It was established in early 2015 by the founder, Marius Maré who is a SA Chartered Accountant and an Associate Management Accountant (ACMA) (CGMA) with extensive corporate experience in various capacities. His 23 years’ experience varies from internal- and external audit to financial management and general management in a listed environment. Marius has exposure to both the private and public sector, as well as small to medium size companies and listed entities.
He has done various financial investigations and has a network of forensic experts in various fields to assist in completing any assignment professionally, diligently and with the necessary skills and care as expected from any big forensic firm.
Fin-Law aims for 100% client satisfaction and prides itself in achieving excellent results based on the principles of integrity, honesty and confidentiality.
If we are of the opinion that we are not in the position to accept an assignment, we will acknowledge the fact and not take on the assignment. We would also accept assignments as sub-contractor to assist in forensic projects to bigger forensic firms if necessary.
