Forensic Services

As the economic downturn intensifies, the possibility of disputes and other difficulties arises more frequently. And when rules are broken—unintentionally or otherwise—organisations are exposed to risks and problems that they are often not used to dealing with, from fraud and abuse to errors and differences in understanding. Whether these challenges involve dealing across borders with customers, joint venture partners, and foreign governments, or whether they are localised to your own country, they may involve different business cultures and legal systems, as well as unfamiliar regulatory and accountability requirements. Every organisation is vulnerable. The risk is real and worrisome.

If this is your situation:

  • You need an independent evaluation of loss and damage arising from a breach of contract or tort.
  • You are involved in litigation or (international) arbitration and require an expert witness.
  • You need to investigate and analyse a claim in a country using local knowledge of business/accounting practice.
  • Your organisation has suffered fraud.
  • Your organisation is facing bribery & corruption claims or there is a suspicion of accounting manipulation, or inappropriate/inadequate disclosure.
  • You are subject to an investigation by the SEC or you face shareholder class action.
  • You want to ensure that you are in compliance with anti-money laundering and other financial crime regulations.
  • There are concerns about the effectiveness of anti-fraud programmes, controls over financial reporting.
  • You have a major insurance claim to deal with.
  • You want to make sure that your royalty income is correct and to audit your licensing contracts.
