Expert services

We uphold the highest levels of professionalism and rigour, and the breadth of expertise across the Azets group allows us to offer specialist reports and testimony across a range of cases and scenarios.

Commercial proceedings

In commercial proceedings, we assess and report to the Court on accounting and quantum issues relating to:

  • Loss of profits and consequential loss
  • Partnership and shareholder disputes
  • Breach of warranty claims
  • Business interruption (and associated insurance claims)
  • Product liability/recall
  • Directors’ breach of fiduciary duties
  • Fraudulent and wrongful trading
  • Mortgage disputes
  • Commercial agency disputes
  • Professional negligence
  • Clinical negligence claims
  • Personal injury claims

Divorce proceedings

The division of assets in divorce proceedings can be emotional and complex.

Our forensic accounting team has extensive experience in dealing with these difficult and sensitive cases. We use our expertise to value business assets such as shareholdings in private companies, and to identify how the funds may be extracted from the business. We also work with our tax colleagues to ensure we thoroughly address all implications.

Our forensic team have prepared a significant number of FPR compliant expert reports and have given evidence in court in relation to:

  • Share valuation
  • Company Liquidity
  • Tax consequences
  • Maintainable earnings assessments

Criminal proceedings and proceeds of crime

Our forensic accounting team regularly prepare, or review the accuracy and reasonableness of, detailed financial analyses created to support criminal prosecutions. We have experience across a number of offences including theft, fraud, wrongful trading, money laundering and tax evasion. Our reports are always impartial, clear and cost effective. We act for both prosecution and defence.

We also assist in Proceeds of Crime (POCA) hearings. Through analysis of volumes of financial records, we can help the Court in determining the correct sum for confiscation. We bring efficiency, clarity and integrity to every case.

We agree to work at the rates mandated by the Legal Services Commission wherever appropriate.
