What we do

We specialise in financial investigations prior to, or in contemplation of, legal action. We often also act as Expert Witnesses on accounting matters in Court.

How we can help

We can accept instructions from clients prior to instructing solicitors in order to establish whether there is evidence that is likely to support a claim. In that situation we act as investigative accountants, gathering evidence, reviewing that evidence and establishing whether it would support a claim in court.
Typically, we are instructed by a client’s legal team to undertake such an investigation and provide a report to them on the strength of a particular claim. Often in this situation we will progress to providing a formal Expert Witness Report for submission to the court. We are experienced in giving expert oral evidence in court.
Many cases never reach the court because a pre-court settlement is obtained either through negotiation or arbitration. We are often used at this stage to help quantify claims and use the strength of our expert opinion to maximise a settlement. The strength and clarity of our expert reports usually maximise the settlements achieved.

Other professional areas

Our extensive experience as investigative accountants and in litigation support inevitably leads to many lecturing assignments. In the late 1980's and early 1990's Monica Bond regularly lectured to the police on areas of business law. Since 1994 there has been a heavy emphasis on Anti-Money Laundering law and practice, where the firm has become a global expert, particularly in South America, Middle East and the Far East. We also lecture extensively on Fraud and Regulatory Compliance.
