Compliance Auditing | building accountability
Contracts and agreements are a critical first step in a business relationship, but they are only paper; their power comes in their enforcement, which begins with auditing.
Over the years, StoneBridge Business Partners has audited almost every kind of agreement imaginable: from distributor and supplier contracts to franchise and royalty owner contracts, from intellectual property agreements to buy-sell agreements.
We also assist clients in managing compliance with their own internal policies and procedures, as well as legal and regulatory requirements, through internal control audits.

A whole-company, whole-industry approach
We make it a practice to correlate company data with our deep understanding of financial issues and our experience across a wide range of industries.
The human element always comes into play as well; we talk extensively with clients and those we audit – to look for patterns that can indicate abuse, to query about risk exposure, to pinpoint system weaknesses.
There are times when a compliance audit uncovers suspicious activity. Because StoneBridge professionals are also trained in forensic accounting, we can investigate instances of fraud and help you with documentation, legal preparation and support in the courtroom.
