What services do our forensic accountants in London provide?
Fields of Expertise
Our highly respected forensic accountants are all leaders in their fields. We are particularly renowned for our work in the areas of pension losses, fatal accident claims and loss of earnings claims, but we have expertise in a wide range of issues, including:
• Personal Injury
We are the ‘go-to’ firm for forensic accountancy services in personal injury, clinical negligence and fatal accident claims. We have over 40 years of experience assisting both Claimants and Defendants and are recognised industry leaders.
• Business Valuations
Business valuations are required in a variety of situations, such as in the context of a divorce, sale or shareholder dispute. Valuing a business is an inherently complex task, but one in which our accountants have extensive experience. We take the time to ensure we thoroughly understand the nature of the business we are valuing and our client’s commercial goals and present our findings with clarity and accessibility in mind.
• Mis-sold Hedging Products
We are regularly called upon to assist clients who have been mis-sold interest rate hedging products by banks. We pinpoint the losses resulting from the additional interest charged as well as any consequential losses incurred.
• Crime and Fraud
Our innovative crime team are at the forefront of their industry. We have considerable experience in Proceeds of Crime matters, and our accountants are regularly instructed by Defendants to analyse reports produced by the Crown Prosecution Service detailing the sums claimed. Our expertise in financial and data analysis makes us ideally placed to handle large amounts of data and identify the sums directly attributable to the criminal behaviour and those gained through legitimate activities.
We understand that divorce cases need to be addressed with sensitivity and compassion, and our accountants are careful not to exacerbate an already stressful situation. We can act on behalf of one or both parties, calculating the value of assets such as shareholdings to assist the couple in reaching a swift financial settlement.
Our specialist tax team assist both companies and individuals facing tax investigations. We will liaise with HMRC on your behalf and negotiate the best possible settlement. We also regularly assist clients with other tax-related issues, such as tax planning.
We tailor our advice to the bespoke needs of each client, providing precisely the level of forensic accountancy input required. We can provide our advice in the following formats, or a combination thereof, as needed:
- • CPR Reports
• Desktop Reports
• Reviews of Claims
• Letters of Advice
• White Label Schedules
Our accountants are experienced expert witnesses, regularly giving evidence under cross-examination at Court. We are familiar with the provisions of the Civil Procedure Rules pertaining to the duties of an expert witness and ensure that we comply with all relevant rules and guidelines.
We are happy to provide free training for solicitors, barristers and in-house legal teams keen to understand the impact of recent reforms, learn more about the various approaches to damages calculations and discuss how our expertise can assist you in proving the quantum element of your clients’ cases.
How Can Our Forensic Accountants In London Help You?
Our role is to quantify and explain the figures at the centre of a dispute and support you in proving entitlement to, or disputing, the damages claimed. Damages calculations are often highly technical, and those tasked with producing them require a thorough understanding of the various approaches in the relevant practice area and the ability to present complex calculations in a straightforward way. We are proud to consistently receive feedback from clients praising our accountants’ ‘clear and accessible’ reports, which they note are ‘concise and easy to understand’.
We are committed to adding the utmost value to our client’s cases and are consistently evolving to keep abreast of new technologies that may enable us to streamline our service and pass on any cost-savings to our clients. Using our decades of experience in forensic accounting, we have developed our own industry standard ‘Frenkels Calculator’ which we use to produce complex, detailed loss of earnings schedules. The calculator significantly reduces the time it takes to prepare such schedules, thereby reducing costs.
We offer a no-obligation fee estimate at the outset of all cases, will keep you regularly updated on costs, and ensure your matter is dealt with as swiftly and cost-effectively as possible.
