Expert witness service 

Are you concerned about supporting your accounting views in the resolution of disputes and in the processes of litigation? We act as consulting and testifying expert witnesses in the application of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and other GAAPs.


We have adopted a commercial approach that maintains an ongoing dialogue with our clients and their advisors and provide ongoing advice on the strengths and weaknesses of a client’s position.

Your issues

  • You understand the accounting application of a matter in dispute or legislation, but how can you be sure the court won’t take a different view?
  • You are happy that the selected accounting option to account for a particular transaction represents the results in the most appropriate manner, but need to add more credibility to your view.

Examples of how we can help

Our team will:


  • provide a realistic preliminary assessment of the position from an expert accountant’s perspective;
  • provide credible written evidence from an experienced expert witness; and
  • provide expert evidence in court.
