Expertise: Insurance

We work closely with adjusters, engineers, lawyers and other experts to provide a reliable service in Business Interruption claims worldwide. We have always taken an independent and technical approach to our analysis. We believe the role of a forensic accountant can be summed up in a single word – measurement. Our task is to analyse where an Insured would have been but for the loss and where they are now, to respond to adjusters’ instruction regarding the policy, and to measure the financial impact of any scenario we are instructed.

There is no single solution to any business interruption claim. By building trust, information is shared readily and joint models can be put together rather than working in isolation. It is one thing to believe you have the correct solution and another to be able to demonstrate and convince another party that you are correct. We are extremely proud of our reports and schedules and feel our record stands for itself – every single claim we have been involved in from the outset has settled amicably without the need for litigation. Our diverse portfolio of files and clients gives our work a degree of authority and means settlements are accepted by Insureds and the follow market.
