Forensic/Expert witness

MHA Larking Gowen’s forensic accounting and expert witness team has more than 40 years' combined experience of providing litigation support across East Anglia. We're available to support claimants in establishing their claim, help defendants minimise claims against them or provide a single joint expert to give impartial advice.
Our forensic accounting and litigation support is strengthened by our own hands-on knowledge of accounting processes. The head of our expert witness team is Jon Woolston, a founder member of the Expert Witness Institute.

There are a number of stages that we can assist with:

  • Firstly determining whether a claim is financially viable.
  • Next to work with you to instruct a firm of solicitors to meet your needs. This is very important because of the legal protection this can afford you that will be necessary later in the process.
  • We will work with the lawyers to determine the quantum of any claim and provide such calculations or report to support your claim.
  • We are experienced in attending mediations, arbitrations and civil court. Our reports have been successful in the Court of Appeal.

Alternatively, we are also experienced at being appointed as a single joint expert. This is where an existing dispute is being managed by the court and lawyers and they require a report independent of the parties to assist the court to advise on the technicalities of the case.

For either route. the areas where we provide specialist advice include:

  • Commercial and contractual disputes
  • Loss-of-profit cases
  • Share valuations
  • Valuations, tax assessment, cashflow assessment and settlement proposals for divorce cases
  • Fraud and theft investigations
  • Financial systems assessment and investigations
  • Professional negligence
  • Interest rate verification and calculation
