Forensic accounting is defined as using accounting skills to investigate a potential fraud and to analyse the information so that it is ready for use in legal proceedings.
Assessing the commercial or financial implications of legal disputes is imperative to ensure that financial settlements encompass every aspect of your case. The ramifications attached to this assessment are huge and getting it wrong can have long-term repercussions.
