RS Forensic advises on the financial aspects of fraud, crime and other financial misconduct. We are appointed to represent claimants and defendants in both civil and criminal proceedings and have acted on behalf of a wide range of clients including individuals, businesses, insurers and not for profit organisations.
We may be appointed to act as expert witness or advisor to assist clients with the following:
- Investigation of company fraud (including false accounting and employee fraud)
- Quantification of losses resulting from fraud or other financial misconduct
- Asset tracing and bank statement analysis
- Confiscation proceedings under POCA
- Review of fraud prevention policies and procedures
- Negotiating settlements relating to underpayment of tax resulting from fraud
We undertake financial investigations in a discrete and timely manner to establish the facts and enable clients to quickly understand the situation. Our input helps clients to proactively manage next steps in the process. Such steps may include the potential recovery of misappropriated funds and/or assets.
We draw together our many years of expert witness and investigations experience to prepare clear and concise reports that are fit for purpose, easy to follow and compliant with the Civil or Criminal Procedure Rules where necessary.
We are regularly instructed to undertake asset tracing and bank statement analysis in the context of divorce proceedings and adopt similar principles in relation to the review and analysis of the factual evidence in expert witness appointments relating to the criminal defence of confiscation proceedings under POCA.
Our crime and financial investigations work is led by Sue Nightingale.
