Construction Webinar

August 04, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM CT


David Crabtree will host a live discussion with our special guests, Carol Phillips and Sarah Beth Magette, to discuss fraud in the construction industry. 

Although fraud can be found across all industries, it is prevalent in construction companies. Unfortunately, the nature of the business presents several opportunities for individuals to take advantage of the system and perform fraudulent activities.

You’re invited to join us on August 4th as David Crabtree, one of Warren Averett’s construction practice leaders, hosts a panel with two of our fraud experts – Carol Phillips and Sarah Beth Magette. They will cover common fraud schemes in the industry and discuss ways to better prevent, detect and deter fraud from happening.

Grab some lunch and join us for this no-fee live interview session where you’ll be able to ask our experts your own questions.
