Forensic accounting

Forensic accounting has in the past been seen as an expensive luxury in legal cases, and this has lead to the Courts being reluctant in many cases to authorise the use of expert accountants.

Cost-effective service

Forensic accounting does not need to be that expensive – give us a try, and we’ll prove it.

We never lose sight of the size or nature of the case we are dealing with, and tailor our work accordingly. We prepare straight forward, balanced reports.

We offer a free initial review so we can advise you how our input might benefit the case, and what our costs will be.

Fixed fee quotes can always be provided and we will not revert to you for increased fees unless you instruct us to carry out work outside our original instructions.

Schedules of loss of earnings and pension

In view of the Courts’ increasing reluctance to appoint joint experts, we have developed a service where we prepare cost-effective Schedules of loss of earnings and pension. For the majority of cases, our charges are as follows:

  • Employed £350 plus VAT
  • Self-employed £475 plus VAT


The partners each have in excess of 10 years experience in forensic accountancy. The partners prepare the reports – the person who signs the report will have done all of the work, will have an in depth knowledge of the case and will appear in Court.

We are experienced in Court – although we are happy to say that most cases in which we have been involved have settled long before any Court appearance was necessary.

We have a wide variety of experience in a range of civil and criminal matters. In the civil arena, we have acted in cases involving:

  • Business valuations
  • Clinical negligence
  • Commercial litigation
  • Consequential loss of profits/business interruption
  • Criminal Injuries Compensation
  • Employment tribunals
  • Fatal accidents
  • Loss of pension
  • Matrimonial disputes
  • Personal injury
  • Professional negligence

We have produced reports for Claimants, Defendants and increasingly now as single joint expert.

In the criminal arena, we have acted for both prosecution and defence, receiving instructions from regulatory authorities, the police and a number of solicitors’ practices.
