What we do

Just like there are many areas of the law that a solicitor can specialise in, the same can be said for accounting. There are even different areas to specialise within Forensic Accounting. We don't just accept any matter, only those where we believe we have the appropriate skills and experience to call ourselves an expert. 

Our experience covers all stages of dispute resolution; from assisting with clarifying the key financial issues and preparation of preliminary estimates through to participation in settlement conferences or giving evidence in court.

Some of the matters in which we are commonly instructed include commercial litigation, family law and personal injury. Our team of Forensic Accounting specialists are always happy to answer any questions, especially if you are unsure about whether or not we are able to help with your case.
