Our range of financial and fraud investigations
We carry out financial and fraud investigations to forensic standards in a wide range of circumstances. Many of these appointments are aimed at establishing whether fraud or other wrongdoing has taken place. Cases are often designed to respond to allegations of civil or criminal law offences.
Every piece of relevant evidence is analysed and we apply our expertise to provide clarity and a professional opinion on every issue.
Our wide range of skills and experience allow us to analyse the evidence in great detail on the most complex of issues in contentious situations and to provide clarity and an expert opinion that produces results.
Our investigations always require great care and sensitivity as heavy penalties often flow from findings of wrongdoing by individuals and businesses.
We can also apply the skills and experience gained from our work on many types of fraud to help clients design systems and procedures that minimise and prevent the risks of fraud.
Our clients include businesses, individuals, law enforcement, prosecutors, regulators, and banks and other financial institutions.
When you suspect that you or your client have suffered a crime, it is essential you act immediately and appoint us to secure and protect your assets. We would capture the evidence quickly before it can be destroyed. Our standards ensure that the evidence is recorded in a form that it would be accepted by prosecutors and courts, with the result that wrongdoers can be prosecuted and the proceeds of crime recovered.

Our investigations cover criminal offences of fraud, whether by false representation, failing to disclose information or by abuse of position. We are also able to work on private prosecutions.

Non-financial and regulatory investigations

We use the latest techniques to gather evidence and access data stored on computers and other devices. We monitor the latest developments and emerging technology to stay at the forefront of developments in AI, algorithms and other electronic systems.
