Using the latest tools and techniques

How We Can Help

Family law

Family law

Family law matters, such as marital disputes, divorce proceedings and other litigation between relatives, can hinge on the value of personal and professional assets. When there is disagreement or opacity in these matters, a financial accountant can provide a reconstruction or valuation that gets to the hidden details behind the numbers. 

Estate matters

Estate matters

Forensic accountants can make a positive difference at several points of the estate planning process. These experts can perform valuations of personal assets and businesses when clients are drawing up their wills and planning the distribution of their property, ensuring the figures hold up under scrutiny and future legal challenges. At the other end of the process, a forensic accountant can serve as an expert witness when contesting or disputing a will or attempting to determine where the assets in an estate reside.

Commercial litigation

Commercial litigation

During a contract or business disputes, an accurate recounting of financial details, including those that may be difficult to discern at first, can be essential to the resolution of the matter. This could include matters of employment law, commercial loss and damage assessments, disagreements between business partners, fraud investigations and more. Wherever there may be inconsistencies or disputed figures, expert forensic accountants can ascertain the truth of the matter.
