Legal disputes can be an enormous drain on resources, a forensic accountant is a key member of your legal team that could strengthen your case and minimise the length and cost of proceedings.

Forensic accounting in divorce cases

Our specialist forensic accountants are trained to investigate financial discrepancies and inaccuracies when reviewing both business and personal finances. In divorce proceedings, this allows us to reveal hidden financial assets and income early on, making equitable distribution possible and improving the chance of settling quickly and out of court.

Even amicable divorces can be complex, with extensive financial portfolios including stock options, assets held in trust, retirement and insurance policies, or even tangible items of high value, such as fine art, antiques and rare collectibles. A financial expert is an essential member of your divorce team to ensure that any settlement is fair, equitable and mutually satisfactory.
