He has also performed analyses for dispute-related damages involving mergers and acquisitions, breach of contract claims, complex accounting disputes, lost profits, business valuation disputes, diminution in value claims, unjust enrichment, earn-outs, reasonable royalty and indemnity claims, among others.

Mathieu said, “I’m honored to join BRG, whose global footprint, talented team and tremendous resources offer unparalleled advantages for my work on behalf of clients facing complex issues.”

Mathieu is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and Illinois CPA Society, where he has held leadership positions. He served as a commissioner on the National Accreditation Commission of the AICPA, which oversees the AICPA’s specialty credentials. He is a frequent author and speaker on forensic accounting issues.
