This type of investigation can be conducted in conjunction with forensic accounting and also our digital forensic services.

- Technical Litigation Support
As a fulfilment of our investigations we can provide technical litigation support to our clients. Our aim is to settle any dispute before it goes to court and we can help by attending pre-trial meetings of opposite sides or meeting of experts. If the dispute will be resolved in court we can act as expert witnesses by preparing effective reports and presenting oral evidence in court. The same applies if a dispute is resolved in arbitration or mediation. We can assist lawyers by providing technical input for the case in order for them to prepare the right questions for cross-examination.
