Our team of forensic accounting specialists are highly experienced in advising on the accounting issues and related financial aspects in any contentious business.

We can demonstrate a high degree of knowledge in our field and are able to assist with the resolution of disputes in the capacity of an expert adviser, expert witness or mediator.

The qualities that our team can bring to bear include:

  • Ability to present findings and opinions with clarity and authority

Our Approach

  • Our aim is to be involved at an early stage to enable our commercial experience to assist the lawyer from the commencement of the dispute.
  • The same person would stay with the case from initial report preparation, through to court appearance as witness if necessary.
  • We can introduce a member of the team with relevant industry expertise.
  • We work with solicitors as part of an integrated team, thus ensuring that the client obtains the maximum value and effectiveness from our expertise.
  • In whichever capacity our team is appointed, the objective is to offer constructive opinions that help minimise the time, cost and risks of legal proceedings and to achieve practical and early settlements.
