Our partners and staff have undertaken projects working alongside lawyers, corporate clients, external investors (including Private Equity) and law enforcement agencies to investigate and report on a wide range of issues. Our expertise in this area includes conducting UK and overseas forensic investigations into accounting irregularities and allegations of fraud, money laundering and bribery and corruption.
We work closely with our clients to understand the specifics of their situation to enable us to plan and conduct an investigation that addresses the issue fully and in a cost effective and efficient manner.
We are experienced in:
- Securing and preserving electronic and ‘hard’ copy evidence to the required evidential standards through rapid deployment of our team (working with key partners as relevant).
- Undertaking complex financial analysis and conducting large-scale document reviews to uncover potential evidence of wrongdoing and establish the facts.
- Conducting witness and suspect interviews.
- Identifying weaknesses in processes and controls and recommending improvements.
In association with key partners, DSW Bridge Houghton Forensic also offers forensic technology, data analysis and electronic disclosure services. In the corporate environment, rapid deployment and low operational impact are key to delivering these services whilst maintaining a high degree of confidentiality and minimum disruption.
A sensible, proportionate cost model makes these services available for a wide range of litigation cases where documents are more sensibly searched and reviewed electronically.
