Experience

As a forensic accountant and litigation / prosecution advisor, David Sawyer has served as consulting or testifying expert in approximately 300 investigations involving fraud, corruption, financial damages and a variety of other legal disputes. He has provided expert witness testimony in more than twenty of those matters. Also a former internal auditor for Fortune 500 corporations, he still regularly consults with organizations on improvements of internal controls, as well as fraud prevention and detection. David served a key role in developing the foundation for Oversight Systems, and has worked as a consultant on the global initiative to combat, profile, prevent and detect multi-national economic and military espionage, as well as the proliferation of WMD, terrorist financing and money laundering.

Blending the rare combination of his background as a practicing CPA, Fortune 500 internal auditor, and Certified Fraud Examiner, Mr. Sawyer has provided high value client service to law enforcement and prosecutors, senior executives and managers, boards of directors, audit committees, general counsel, attorneys and litigators for governments, publicly-traded global corporations, and privately-owned businesses.

As a litigation consultant and forensic accountant, Mr. Sawyer has performed forensic financial analysis in a variety of matters, including fraud investigation, contract and post-acquisition dispute, calculation of damages and lost profits, bankruptcy proceedings, intellectual property infringement, and financial misstatement.

As an Internal Auditor and Business Risk Consultant for multi-national corporations and governmental entities, Mr. Sawyer has identified process and financial control weaknesses which indicate exposure to fraud or abuse, and recommended solutions for improvements in operational efficiency and effectiveness in achieving company objectives.

David is a licensed private detective in the state of Georgia.  Before joining Frazier & Deeter, David established Sawyer & Company, his own forensic accounting firm.  Prior to that, he was a managing consultant with forensic units of two Big Four accounting firms. 

David has been elected president of the Georgia Chapter of ACFE four times, and has provided training for thousands of professionals and students in forensic accounting, internal controls, and white collar crime investigations.
