We were instructed to act as forensic accountant in the commercial dispute between the majority shareholder of a trading company when a minority shareholder, who had previously transferred his shares to the director, reappeared after many years, claiming that the share transfer paperwork was defective.

Our client needed a forensic accountant to assist in negotiations throughout and we attended the mediation when the matter was settled with a payment to the minority shareholder. We assisted in advising on all the subsequent paperwork and tax implications on the whole transaction.
