Mary O'Connor

Click here for a copy of the handouts. Printed copies will not be available. 

The theft of $53 million from the City of Dixon is a textbook case of clean audits, balanced books and reconciled bank accounts where the finances of this small town should have been secure and safe from fraud. This seminar outlines the methods used to steal the money, the culture that let it happen, the measures taken to prevent it in the future and the public and private fall-out. The lessons learned apply equally to government and business. Prevention and incident handling in any setting will also be discussed, as well as attorney ethical considerations.

Mary O'Connor, ASA, CFE, has worked exclusively in the field of valuation and financial forensics since 1979. She specializes in business valuation and the appraisal of tangible and intangible assets for litigation with special focus in health care, intangible assets in property tax appeal, securities, subrogation and insurance matters.
