In this respect, they apply a meticulous method to every case, ensuring that nothing is overlooked.
Having been involved in forensic accounting and expert witness work for over twenty years, Moira has given evidence in the High Court on many occasions, as well as in Criminal and Magistrates Courts. In addition, in 2008 her casebook of professional negligence claims against auditors and accountants called ‘Audit and Accountancy Pitfalls’ was published.
