Forensic accounting

Milsted Langdon’s forensic accountants have helped to unravel some particularly challenging financial disputes ranging from the most modest to multi-party cross-border litigation involving tens or hundreds of millions of pounds.

We provide persuasive, clear and concise jargon-free expert witness reports and a number of our partners and directors have an excellent reputation for performance under cross-examination.

Our approach is to seek to become involved in litigation at as early a stage as possible so that the solicitor and accountant can work together to build a strong case capable of withstanding attack from hostile experts employed by the opposing side.

We are careful to avoid becoming merely ‘expert experts’ and each member of the litigation support team has the benefit of continuing day-to-day experience in at least one other area of accountancy. This means that we can bring practical knowledge to forensic instructions in relation to all accountancy disciplines including taxation, corporate finance and insolvency.

The availability of specialist expertise in the various areas of accountancy means that the litigation support team is able to provide an expert who not only has the necessary detailed relevant knowledge but also an understanding of the legal process. This means that evidence can be presented at trial, either by way of written report or under cross-examination, which is objective in nature and plausible in delivery.
