Find out more about our specialised forensic accounting support and how we can help you

Forensic Services

Forensic is defined as ‘used or applied in the investigation and establishment of facts or evidence in a court of law.’

A forensic accountant uses a combination of accounting, investigative and legal skills to provide an accounting analysis that is suitable to the court and will form the basis for discussion, debate and ultimately dispute resolution.

David Arthur leads our forensics team, supported by specialists from various departments within Tait Walker. David has been in practice for over 35 years with experience in all areas of forensic accounting.

If there is any area  of forensic accounting you wish to discuss, please feel free to contact David Arthur on 0191 285 0321 or email david.arthur@taitwalker.co.uk with your query.
