Forensic & Expert Witness Services

Title

 The job of an expert witness is to answer impossible questions on incomplete data and give a clear and well-reasoned account to the Court. 

We combine long experience of both corporate finance and recovery work with accounting expertise and the all-round commercial knowledge that comes from running your own business to advise the Court clearly and concisely, and stand behind our judgements.

It is rare that cases go all the way to a court hearing nowadays, and there are few practising experts with the experience of giving evidence in court and being cross-examined. Antony Fanshawe of FPN is one of those.

We have been involved in some twenty five such cases since the turn of the century.

We were recently involved in a substantial claim by a Liquidator against former directors for misfeasance and other heads of claim which required expert input from an accountant who ideally also held an insolvency licence. He was needed to advise on the losses caused by the directors activities. We were recommended to instruct Antony Fanshawe of FPN and he subsequently provided an excellent in depth report. Furthermore he later attended successful settlement negotiations. In fact, it was his clear understanding of the figures and his ability to clearly explain his loss calculations and methodology that persuaded the opponents to settle before trial. We have since retained Antony to advise on another two matters of substance (one of which is not insolvency related) and in both cases we have received plaudits from both the clients and senior counsel in relation to his work and in particular his grasp of the complex issues.
