Forensic, litigation and arbitration
At Mazars we deal with complex investigations and dispute resolution assignments throughout the world and facilitate positive resolutions. This can include determining and documenting relevant facts and events, analysing and concluding upon the impact of the financial information and providing assistance with negotiations.
Our Forensic and Investigation Services team has extensive experience of providing high-quality, timely and cost-effective investigations, advice and expert reports on a wide variety of financial and accountancy matters, including:
Litigation and arbitration – acting as party-appointed or single joint expert or expert advisor in a host of litigation, national and international arbitration (including ICC, ICSID, LCIA) and Alternative Dispute Resolution procedures (including loss of profits claims, contractual disputes, financial reporting disputes, valuations, professional negligence and insurance claims)
Investigations – providing authoritative and impartial advice in investigations and asset recoveries (including fraud investigations, government and regulatory enquiries (including pricing issues), tax investigations and insolvency related investigations).
We also offer computer forensic services in connection with our litigation, arbitration and investigation assignments, including data collection, analysis, interpretation and reporting.
At Mazars we understand that success is built on genuine expertise. It is our practise to propose an assignment team that best fits the requirements of the case, whether that team comprises solely Forensic and Investigation Services specialists or combines the experience and expertise of our Forensic and Investigation Services team with that of other specialists within our global firm, drawn from our Audit and assurance, Tax or Advisory practices.
Mazars is a truly global partnership and has experts around the world that share common standards and procedures in investigations and expert witness assignments. Our partners personally know and trust each other and are able to respond quickly and effectively to achieve a positive outcome on complex cross-border assignments.
We provide a practical and tailored approach to each assignment, sensitive to concerns over business disruption, confidentiality and reputation issues. The hands-on, innovative, proactive and prompt approach of our partners ensures we thoroughly investigate and analyse your case to meet your needs. We present our findings as a written report or statement and, when required, as witness evidence through oral testimony and / or cross examination.
