    Deals Forensic Services


    In Forensic Services we help our clients to prepare for, respond to, and emerge stronger from a wide range of business risks and issues. This could include a corruption scandal that spreads across an entire nation, a data breach that shakes customer confidence, a dispute with a business partner threatening to erode value, or widespread fraud that has recently been unearthed. Each client faces a different challenge and you could be involved in any one, or all of these types of engagements. We’ve been involved in some of the most high-profile and headline-grabbing assignments globally. Business threats, financial crime and projects in crises give rise to high profile and intellectually challenging work.

     

    Our services include


    - Solutions to combat financial crime (including anti-money laundering services, regulatory investigations, optimising transaction monitoring systems, market abuse and rogue trading investigations)
    - Forensic Investigations (including the investigation of fraud, corruption, bribery, and other economic crime to help clients respond to and emerge stronger from a range of business issues. This often involves leveraging forensic technology and corporate intelligence)
    - Dispute Resolution Strategies (advising on the financial, economic and valuation aspects of claims, assisting clients through the dispute resolution process and providing independent expert testimony. We work on a wide range of disputes including litigation, arbitration, mediation, expert determination and regulatory matters)
    - Forensic Technology Solutions (helping clients manage and analyse vast amounts of electronic data and navigate the legal and business processes required in a crisis).
    - Capital Project Success (helping clients deliver tough projects by providing insight and expertise to put them back in control)
