Ackland Webb Accountants
As the business world becomes ever more sophisticated, the review and analysis of financial and accounting data, and the use of expert financial evidence, is increasingly important in assisting the prosecution and/or defence to ensure the smooth running of criminal and regulatory cases. The use of such expert evidence can increase the chance of achieving the best possible outcome for the end client.
We assist legal teams with financial and accounting evidence
We have assisted prosecution and defence teams in relation to many types of criminal and regulatory cases, including those relating to:
- Corporate fraud, including fraudulent trading and false accounting
- Other fraud, including investment and mortgage fraud
- Theft, including employee theft
- Insolvency-related offences
- Carousel and other tax fraud
- Money laundering
We will consider the robustness of the conclusions drawn from financial and accountancy evidence, and whether such evidence may suggest an alternative factual scenario to the one upon which allegations advanced by the prosecution are based.
We also have considerable experience in providing expert evidence in relation to confiscation orders, and often investigate the level of confiscation claimed for legal proceedings.
We are proud members of:
