Forensic Accounting Expertise

We help people with accounting expert opinions and investigations in respect of various disputes, confrontational situations and litigation. This is the speciality known as Forensic Accounting.

The problem with business and commercial disputes these days is they have become decidedly complex to the point where solicitors and barristers and in particular the courts have recognised the need to involve Specialist Accountants early in the process of rectifying the commercial issues their clients find themselves in.

Forensic Accounting is input as to the position from the accounting perspective.

This can include anything from the need to interpret what financial statements mean to taking accounting source documents and analysing what has actually transpired. To resolve many disputes it can often be necessary to know the value of a business or legal entity.

There are situations where one can interpret events in a certain way but the accounting evidence can be completely at odds with the interpretation.

At Clout & Associates we have assisted in all forms of disputes by undertaking Investigations and providing of expert evidence in the following situations:-

  • Family law disputes where the value of businesses are of significance.
  • Fraud cases
  • Ownership disputes
  • Minority oppression actions
  • Corruption cases
  • Insolvent trading actions
  • Loss of profit
  • Loss of opportunity
  • Damages
  • Business valuations
  • Obtaining evidence in support of theft accusations where civil action is contemplated or to defend people suffering in this.

If you are confronted with situations which may eventually need accounting input you should call us for an initial obligation free consultation.

The Principal of this firm, Morgan Chubb has over 22 years experience in all forms of forensic accounting and was in fact active in the area before it ever had a specialist title.

He has accumulated a strong team with advanced analytical skills and trained them up in this sophisticated speciality.

Given our experience in insolvency, we also have extensive exposure, comfort and familiarity with the litigation process as well as finely honed proactive investigative skills. We also have much experience of interviewing people in hostile environments.

The commercial nature of our insolvency practise also provides an edge to the level of understanding brought to bear on complex business situations.
