Answer

There are many reasons for using a Forensic Accountant to examine the financial and business aspects of a dispute. Listed below are some of the benefits:

    No Conflicts of Interest

    The accountant of the company or individual may not be seen to be completely independent. We do not undertake forensic accounting assignments for clients for whom we act as auditors, accountants or tax advisers.

    Experience and Objectivity

    We specialise in Forensic Accounting and bring our past experience to bear on each new case or dispute. Our independence helps to ensure our approach is always objective.

    Continuity

    You will deal with our partners in every case or dispute.

    Diplomacy

    We understand the effect of these sensitive situations on individuals and recognise a diplomatic and professional service is vital.

    Evidence

    You will benefit from our structured approach to preparing financial evidence. Our reports are thoroughly researched and we are prepared to support our conclusions by providing court room evidence.

    Quick response

    Cases frequently need the financial assessment or a report prepared quickly. We have the ability, resources and experience to meet tight deadlines.

    Teamwork

    We are accustomed to working as part of a multi-disciplinary team and fully understand our role as an extension of the legal team.
