The Company

MSC is a consulting firm specializing in crisis management for troubled companies, forensic accounting, internal management accounting, controls, and MIS systems. Our staff of professionals is comprised mainly of Certified Public Accountants, many of them with Big Five accounting experience, and other financial, MIS and CAS experts.

MSC was formed to fill a void in the business environment. We have found that many businesses do not have either the personnel or the resources to provide management with the information needed to quickly respond to changes in economic conditions. As forensic consultants, MSC uses its knowledge base of operations, accounting, and systems to accurately recreate and interpret historical financial information.

MSC has provided services to financial institutions, public corporations and privately held corporations in a variety of industry areas. We have an excellent track record and are recommended by major accounting firms, banks and law firms to provide a cost effective solution for their clients.
