Our Services

Preliminary Assessment

When your client is in the negotiation phase, it is possible that all they need is a preliminary assessment. At this stage a review of the corporate structures being used,  an assessment of financial resources available to  them,  a  consolidation of  the  net  assets  within  the  structures  or an indicative business valuation would enable them to enter into settlement negotiations  or mediation.  While an analysis  of  this  type  can  be  completed  applying  the  same  procedures  as an expert report, a letter of findings or short form report may be sufficient to meet the needs of your client, avoiding the requirements and expense of an expert report that satisfies Court requirements.

Expert Report and Expert Evidence

Where negotiations have been  unsuccessful  and  your  client  needs  to  take  the  next  step,  we can assist  by  preparing  an  independent  expert  report  for  acceptance  by  the  Court.  This can  be in the form of a single expert report or an adversarial report in circumstances where the parties agree  to  proceed  on  this  basis.  Our experts have experience  in  the  preparation  of  expert reports  that  have  been  accepted  by  the  Court  and  will  proceed  to  give  expert  evidence  should it proceed to  Court.  At  all  times  our  Expert  Reports  prepared  for  Court  purposes  will  comply with the requirements of the Court.

Single Expert Report

If the Court orders the appointment of a single expert, or you determine  that  it’s  the  best approach, we have the experience and understanding to operate in accordance with the requirements of the Court. We take the  time  to  calmly  work  through  the  information  and provide a reliable opinion for your clients. We can provide your client with an estimate of fees to prepare an expert report so your clients can agree on an expert or alternatively we are comfortable receiving  joint  instructions  where  the  Parties  have  already  agreed  to  appoint either David or Kellie as their expert.

Review Another Report

Where an  expert  report  has  been  prepared in your client’s matter and you are not quite sure whether the opinion is right, we can review the report and provide a preliminary opinion so you can make sure you take  the next steps  with  confidence.  If  needed,  we can then prepare an  independent  expert report for acceptance by the Court that concentrates on the matters in dispute.

Shadow Expert

In  more  complex  matters  it  may  be  necessary  for  you  to  have  a  forensic  accountant  as  part  of the  legal  team.  We  can  review  the  documents  provided  by  your  client,  recommend  what information is relevant for the independent expert and assist you to draft  instructions. In  these matters you will have an experienced forensic accountant as part of your legal team to assist in achieving the best outcome.
