Forensic Services

The PwC forensic services team can assist you in the investigation, analysis and resolution of your business issues and disputes. Whether reacting to an incident or offering proactive solutions, our network of forensic services practices combines a global reach with dedicated local teams to support your business.

We help organisations tackle the major financial and reputational risks associated with economic crime. Our forensic experts identify financial irregularities, recover stolen assets, and introduce controls to mitigate the future risk of fraud. We have also developed and pioneered new technology specialising in the capture, management and analysis of data to support investigations and dispute resolution.

The team has a long established litigation support practice. In addition, we provide investigation and accounting skills to help businesses resolve complex financial disputes arising from corporate transactions, insurance claims, intellectual property and licensing contracts, and construction projects. We also advise on SEC/FSA regulatory compliance and on minimising the risks of shareholder litigation.

The forensic services team includes accountants, ex-regulators and law enforcement officers, engineers, chartered surveyors, economists and insurance professionals.

Our forensic services are:

(i) Anti money laundering

The fight to deter money laundering and terrorist financing has been a high priority by law enforcement agencies and financial regulators around the globe. The financial services sector, in particular, faces significant reputation and regulatory risk should it be deemed to have inadequate arrangements to prevent money laundering.

PwC assists with the development of compliant but cost-effective processes and controls to protect against financial crime risk, including fraud, money laundering and market abuse.
