Cendrowski Corporate Advisors Launches Alliance With Former IRS Criminal Investigator

Bloomfield Hills, Mich.-based Cendrowski Corporate Advisors announced that it is adding to its investigative, anti-fraud, money laundering, internal investigations and asset forfeiture capabilities with its new alliance with Ron Braver and Associates LLC of Chicago.

Braver is a former special agent and supervisory special agent of the criminal investigation division of the IRS. He and his firm bring decades of federal law enforcement and private sector consulting experience to Cendrowski Corporate Advisors.

The firm focuses on high-profile investigations involving criminal tax matters, failed banks and savings and loans, bankruptcies, and fraud across a range of issues including securities, mortgage, health care, foreign exchange as well as embezzlement.

“Confronting today’s sophisticated frauds and corporate malfeasance takes a level of expertise that isn’t easy to find,” says Harry Cendrowski, CCA managing director, “and through our alliance with Ron and his firm, we’ve done just that. He calls Braver a “force multiplier.”

Braver adds, “I’ve known the Cendrowski team by reputation for years, and have seen many of their expert reports in prior matters where we were mutually involved – and I’m looking forward to expanding the investigatory and financial tools they can deploy for their clients across a wide range of sectors.”

Braver’s IRS investigations led to approximately 75 guilty pleas/convictions and more than $41 million in forfeiture and fines. Formerly with Chicago-based Grant Thornton LLP (FY18 net revenue of $1.87 billion), he founded Ron Braver and Associates LLC in 2012.
