        DWF Forensic

        DWF Forensic is a team of experienced, qualified forensic accountants and investigators, with ‘Big Four’ accounting expertise.

        We specialise in providing forensic accountancy support across regulatory issues and contact management, as well as in avoiding disputes, addressing risk and in screening and monitoring.

        Over the years we have each assisted clients with the quantification or challenge of losses arising from business interruption; breach of contract; defamation; fire and water damage; breach of copyright and losses arising from personal injury; as well as completing investigations related to both the UK Fraud and Bribery Acts (typically following whistle-blower activity); and we have worked closely with legal teams and the police to secure civil recoveries and criminal convictions across the globe.

        Our intelligence team follows the National Intelligence Model. We believe that appropriate due diligence and ongoing monitoring should be a prerequisite to all new stakeholder relationships to mitigate risk, as well as an essential component of our quantum and investigations work. 

        We offer insurer clients specialist forensic accounting expertise - helping to assess the financial elements of all personal injury claims from a realistic, commercially-relevant position. We can assist with a wide range of issues relating to earnings and pensions including overseas earnings and periodical payment orders.

        DWF Forensic provides immediate, cost effective access to a high level of accounting expertise for personal injury claims, from developing the strategy for the case through to working alongside the legal team throughout the lifespan of a claim.

        Should a business suffer fraud, bribery or other financial irregularity, response time is critical. We will react, quickly, to identify, secure and search key evidence found on computer hard drives and server emails; identify key suspects and witnesses; conduct investigative interviews; assist DWF's specialist lawyers with civil recovery proceedings; prepare detailed investigation plans and reports; communicate findings to senior management and the Board; and to provide post-incident advice on relevant control.

We help our clients to focus upon the likely costs and outcomes of legal strategies from the outset. This helps you to make appropriate business decisions and reach satisfactory settlements at the earliest opportunity.
