We can help explain the finances


Settling the finances following divorce

Settling the finances following divorce

As forensic accountants we are frequently asked to advise on the financial aspects of separation and divorce.  We can help with identifying asset, valuing majority and minority holdings in private companies and businesses, and presenting the parties’ financial position in clear and authoritative reports. 


We recognise that we are often dealing with a very delicate situation where there may have been a loss of trust. We are always careful to approach our work with sensitivity but with the aim of presenting the financial position in a comprehensive and accurate manner.


Our reports are credible, robust and grounded in commercial reality. While most cases settle by negotiation or following a mediation, our experts have given evidence in Court on several occasions. For example, one of our experts gave evidence at the hearing in the landmark case of Prest v Petrodel. This case progressed to the Supreme Court and provided guidance on the application of the corporate veil in family law cases.

We work regularly with the leading matrimonial firms of solicitors and have extensive experience in providing party-appointed and single joint expert reports for use in negotiations and court hearings. Our founder is a member of Resolution.


What our clients say about us


Testimonial
Michael leads the divorce practice at this major firm

I spoke to Charles some years ago and identified him as the ‘go-to’ person when I needed to investigate or to present the financial position of high net worth individuals in reports and in court.


His reports are carefully prepared and supported by thorough research.


I would not hesitate in recommending him for big money and complex matrimonial cases.

I wanted to thank you sincerely for the help that you provided. It has been a pleasure to get to know you and I have enjoyed our various meetings. The insights and advice that you were able to provide me with during my divorce negotiations were invaluable. Should any of my friends be unfortunate enough to go through a similar situation, I would not hesitate to recommend you.
