Services for Solicitors' Clients

When you or your clients need expert advice, our dedicated team is here to help you.

Probate and estate accounts

We don’t intrude on the traditional probate and will services provided by solicitors. Instead we work in a complementary way with you to provide a prompt and sympathetic approach to your clients’ probate and estate matters.

Forensic services

As accredited members of NIFA (Network of Independent Forensic Accountants), our dedicated team provides forensic, accounting and expert witness services for personal and corporate cases. Our reports are objective, comprehensive and understandable, giving you and your clients a firm foundation on which to build your case.

Expert witness and litigation support

We assist in disputes involving shareholders, directors, partnerships, employment, and matrimonial matters. This also includes fraudulent or wrongful trading, business and share valuations, investigations and asset tracing.

Court of Protection

We act with sensitivity in cases of diminished mental capacity, assisting and advising on financial aspects and implications.

Divorce and financial settlements

We assist with financial planning in separation of joint assets and liabilities and advise on structuring financial affairs after divorce. Our services include valuation of business assets, asset tracing, assistance with Form E, taxation planning and mitigation, examination of financial affairs and mediation.


As accredited members of CEDR (Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution) we assist solicitors in the resolution of disputes and deadlocked negotiations in a variety of business and personal situations.

Business valuations

Where these are required for acquisitions, sales, taxation, probate and matrimonial purposes our specialists are able to provide authoritative and substantiated business valuations.

Commercial disputes

Commercial disputes can involve a variety of financial, accounting and taxation issues. Our experience covers all these areas and we are happy to provide formal and informal opinions to assist solicitors in all these areas.


We believe that clients should always know our fees or basis of our fees before we start an assignment, so there are no surprises. We are happy to provide fixed fees or quotations for our work in advance.
