Hyder Consulting Group is a business and litigation consulting firm formed in 2009 by Cheryl Hyder after more than 20 years as a consultant with international and national accounting and consulting firms. Our goal is to offer our clients accessibility and a personalized approach, which is a viable alternative to large consulting firms. HCG operates in a consultative environment, and offers a network of professionals with complementary backgrounds and varying levels of experience and expertise at affordable rates to its clientele.
As forensic accountants, we analyze complex financial and accounting issues, including operating policies and procedures, to assist our clients in solving the problems they are facing. This may include conducting a financial investigation or fraud examination, assisting joint venture partners with "truing up" contract payments, or assisting management with evaluating its internal control structure or other policies and procedures for efficiency and effectiveness in carrying out core missions. It may also mean valuing a business interest for divorce, tax planning, or business succession planning.
In addition to providing expert witness testimony, we have engagement experience serving as a consulting expert and as a jointly engaged, neutral expert. The neutral role facilitates settlement and avoids more costly litigation with increased privacy for the parties.
We also have developed proactive and reactive responses to fraud risk. This includes providing assistance to clients with implementation of the tools developed, performing "root cause" analyses for potential accounting or other irregularities discovered, and assisting with business process redesign to facilitate stronger internal control and policy compliance.
Our office is located less than a mile from the Fairfax County Courthouse, although we do travel to client locations as needed or requested. We are only a phone call or email away, and can usually be reached 7 days a week, via email at CHyder@HyderCPA.Com or by phone at 703.966.7995 (calls usually returned within 24-48 hours).
