Fraud and Forensic Services

Why Forensic Accounting?

Forensic accountancy is a necessity for anyone involved in a financial dispute. It involves applying accounting and financial skills to the civil and criminal legal process.  
 
Plaintiffs, defendants, legal professionals and the courts require clarity and guidance in understanding complex financial issues. A legal team can only argue a financial case effectively if they have the full facts and figures at their disposal.
