Most organisations will face the challenge of how to deal with a dispute, fraud or cyber-attack.

  • expert witness (incl. quantification of losses, valuations);
  • fraud investigations;
  • asset tracing;
  • digital forensics (e-discovery, IT forensics, data analysis);
  • cyber security; and
  • expert determination.
