They are supported by a team of specialists who combine forensic accounting, audit and industry experience.

Our team provides investigative, asset tracing and recovery services. We will help you to establish liability, trace misappropriated assets and mitigate the impact of financial and economic crime. When investigating fraud, accounting "black holes", regulatory breaches, employee misconduct and other financial crime, we assemble multi-disciplinary teams tailored to successfully completing your engagement.

To minimise the chances of you suffering a recurrence, our risk specialists develop and implement fraud and corruption prevention measures that protect your businesses against the threat of financial crime.

Our team regularly conducts large scale, complex financial investigations for the UK's leading law enforcement, prosecution and regulatory agencies, as well as for major law firms, banks, international corporations and foreign governments.
