Dispute Advisory Services
Our dispute resolution team helps to quantify loss or financial exposure across a variety of industry sectors and jurisdictions. We support our clients and their legal advisers in all stages of the dispute process.
Our expert witnesses have provided expert opinions on quantum or professional negligence in hundreds of cases; supporting them is a team of specialists who combine forensic accounting, audit and industry experience. Our team has considerable experience of providing evidence in UK civil courts, insolvency, international arbitration tribunals, criminal courts and regulatory investigations.
Our highly experienced forensic computing team is at the forefront of forensic investigation and review, with a wealth of knowledge and technological expertise to provide technical solutions and support to investigations. The team assists with the capture and recovery of electronic data for investigation and review, and in a manner that ensures it is admissible in both criminal and civil courts of law. We also provide electronic disclosure ("eDisclosure") using our Relativity platform and expert witness services.
Fraud and Financial Investigations
Our team provides investigative, asset tracing and recovery services to establish liability, trace misappropriated assets and mitigate the impact of financial and economic crime. Whether investigating fraud, accounting "black holes", regulatory breaches, employee misconduct or other financial crime, we build multi-disciplinary teams tailored to the requirements of the assignment.
To minimise the chances of recurrence, our risk specialists develop and implement fraud and corruption prevention measures that protect businesses against the threat of economic crime. Our team regularly conducts large scale, complex financial investigations for the UK's leading law enforcement, prosecution and regulatory agencies, as well as major law firms, banks, international corporations and foreign governments.
