Forensic Recovery Services
Where companies have failed, directors and other parties may have contributed to the collapse through negligence, misconduct or the misappropriation of assets. Ultimately, it is the creditors who will incur substantial losses.
Funding litigation – The problem
All too often, action is not taken to recover losses due to lack of funding. Strong claims may be dropped if it is perceived that recovery proceedings amount to throwing good money after bad. Although powers and remedies are available, the associated costs of investigation and litigation have created a climate where those powers are seldom used effectively.
Litigation funding solution
Our team of specialist forensic investigators and insolvency practitioners can take a “no win, no fee” approach to investigating and pursuing claims. The benefit for potential claimants is that strong claims can be pursued with a reduced financing risk.
To assist investigations, we also have access to a specialist team of forensic computer experts. These specialists can deliver cost-effective capture, recovery and analysis of electronic evidence from computers and hand-held technology, including mobile phones and PDA devices.
For many years and with considerable success, we have been providing litigation funding solutions coupled with our recovery services in the pursuit of claims which would otherwise have been abandoned.
Our work has resulted in substantial recoveries for claimants in circumstances where they would otherwise have been unable to pursue a strong recovery action effectively.
Each assignment is the personal responsibility of one of our experienced specialist licensed insolvency practitioners.
We will assign a specialist team of multi-disciplinary professionals and, where possible, make use of conditional fee agreements and ‘after the event’ insurance policies to minimise the funding requirement from the client.
The stages of our work may be summarised as follows:
- Initial review
- Means investigation
- Appointment of liquidator or trustee
- Forensic investigation
- Recovery action
Interim progress reports and advice will be provided as the matter proceeds.
