Disputes and litigation are a fact of life in today’s fast-paced and complex business environment.
Almost any business that offers professional advice – whether how a company should invest its money or how an individual should approach legal proceedings – runs the risk of having action taken against them if said advice is sub-standard or ill guided. In cases such as this, forensic accountants can play a very important role.
We can assist through various stages of a professional negligence claim, from initial advice to expert witness services. This includes opinions on liability and/or quantum of loss, relating to the conduct and competence of accountants, auditors, actuaries and financial services professionals.
We can provide support in the following specific areas:
- Early assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of your case and an appreciation of the key issues;
- Detailed knowledge and experience of the duties and standards of care owed by professional advisers;
- Reports drafted with precision and clarity including explanations for our opinions on liability and quantum of loss made easily accessible for non-technical audiences.
As a Firm we have a robust track record of dealing with the specialist and financial aspects of professional negligence disputes.
