What is Forensic Accounting?


Forensic Accountants combine the skills and services of an Auditor, an Investigator and a Forensic Analyst. In an increasingly complex and litigious business world these such services are frequently required to provide expert testimony in court for litigation support and to resolve disputes across a range of areas from personal injury claims to matrimonial disputes, fraud investigations and interruptions in business. “Forensic Accounting” provides an accounting analysis that is suitable to the court which will form the basis for discussion, debate and ultimately dispute resolution.


As Forensic Accounting specialists, with over 10 years experience our managing partner has a wealth of knowledge in a broad range of litigation cases, expert witness reporting and presentation and the negotiation of settlements. Equally critical is our ability to respond immediately and to communicate financial information clearly and concisely. Forensic Accountants are trained to look beyond the numbers and deal with the business reality of the situation.
