Forensic Accounting & Litigation Support
Forensic accounting is about looking at financial records and working out what is verifiably true or false with regard to assets and money. Where are they? And how can they be recovered?
There’s a good chance that at some point in your business or personal life you’ll find yourself involved in a legal dispute over money. It could be any of the following:
- Personal injury claim
- Contractual dispute
- Insurance claim
- Contested business loss
- Matrimonial dispute
- Professional negligence claim
- Tax enquiry
- Royalty or copyright dispute
- Fraud investigation
In cases like these, we can work with your lawyer to study and interpret the facts of the case with a particular focus on the numbers. Often, our involvement at an early stage can result in the matter being settled out of court – less time-consuming and painful all round.
If there is a need to pursue litigation, we can:
- Provide the necessary information and documentation to support your case
- Produce valuations in support of a claim
- Act as an expert witness in court
These services can considerably strengthen your case and cut your litigation costs.
