Forensic Accounting Services

Economic damages are about money – how much was lost as a result of the incident, either in a personal or commercial capacity. As seasoned litigation support practitioners, we can sift through complex financial records to locate crucial information, focus on the relevant facts of the claim, provide accurately quantified economic damages and support our conclusions in a manner that is easily understood. In anticipation of use in a court setting, our reports are prepared to the highest standards. This calls for a balance between investigative accounting skills, industry/market knowledge and courtroom experience.

In addition to quantifying damages, preparing reports and acting as expert witnesses, we are frequently called upon to advise lawyers on the merits of the damages being claimed, prepare financial exhibits and questions for the discovery process and for cross examination at trial.
