Forensic Insolvency

Investigating the demise of a business through negligence, misappropriation of assets or misconduct

The investigation of a business that has failed through the negligence or misconduct of its directors, requires a skilled approach to identify areas of concern. We work with insolvency practitioners (IPs) to identify areas to examine, collect evidence and assist in pursuing claims.

Whilst there are relatively few UK-based specialists in this field, we already have a formidable track record and have developed strong relationships with a network of UK-based solicitors who rely on us for our opinions and input.

Our services include:

  • Acting as expert witnesses in disputes relating to failed businesses – including quantifying losses caused by business cessation, and withholding funds from businesses

  • Acting as expert witness in insolvency litigation including the provision of expert opinion on solvency and viability as part of proceedings to overturn transactions

  • Directors’ defence relating to disqualification or claims

  • Alternative dispute resolution including acting as mediator in insolvency-related actions, and providing expert determinations in a range of ancillary matters

  • Acting as expert accountant and/or valuer in restructurings – including valuation of troubled and insolvent businesses; solvency opinions for transactions; pension fund

Note: we are not licensed Insolvency Practitioners, but will work with the instructing solicitor or appointed IP.
