From commercial matters to family law & personal injury claims, we work with law firms, insurers, general counsel and arbitrators. When disputes arise or if fraud has taken place, independent forensic services can have a significant impact on the outcome of the case.
Often, the key to a successful resolution is more about knowing how to present facts and scenarios to HM Revenue & Customs in a form that will enable an acceptable settlement to be made.
It is important to conduct a thorough investigation before any disciplinary action is taken. Safeguard and preserving potential evidence is vital when investigating fraud in the workplace. Businesses should also consider implementing tighter financial controls and improve due diligence on employees to prevent future fraud.
Our team of investigations experts have a wealth of experience in financial investigation, forensic accounting and source investigations. All our work is conducted in accordance with the highest ethical and legal standards applicable within the jurisdictions in which we operate.
Developing best-practice anti-corruption and anti-fraud compliance programs is important in the remediation steps when addressing weaknesses in the controls of the business. This includes the implementation of enhanced internal controls and tailored risk-based due diligence systems.
Advertisers and their respective agencies are increasingly demanding transparency in respect of rebate entitlements earned from their media expenditure.
This can have untold impacts on a company’s revenues and profits, and in the worse-case scenario result in the founding of new competitors undermining a company’s USP.
It is important to gain an accurate picture of the business you are looking to acquire or merge with. By gaining independent information, you will have a clearer understanding the company's background, its track record and overall reputation.
