Our Forensic Accounting team has worked on a significant number of assignments covering the assessment of economic loss arising from a wide range of activities and circumstances. We have reconstructed accounting records and financial statements of many organisation for various purposes, including fraud. This has often involved detailed analysis of accounting records and systems and the use of complex financial modelling.

Our team is also experienced in matters where claims have been made against accounting firms alleging negligent audits. These assignments have required an evaluation of professional services in the context of relevant requirements, including auditing and accounting standards.

Reporting and expert witness testimony

To enable lodgement in any court in Australia, reports compiled throughout the forensic accounting process must be prepared to a high standard and be both objective and reasoned.

The role of an expert witness is to present evidence and testimony to the court, and parties in dispute, as an objective third party. Our Forensic Accounting team has wide experience in this area.

Our opinion evidence has been sought in respect of:

  • accounting and audit negligence
  • the assessment of economic loss and damage
  • valuations of businesses and business entities
  • the reasonableness of pricing regimes.

Our senior people have published an extensive number of opinion reports and have given evidence in jurisdictions throughout Australia.
