Our accountants' liability team has over 30 years experience advising and defending accountancy firms. Having been involved in numerous high profile matters, we are uniquely placed to assist all sizes and types of firms.
Our team has extensive experience of handling regulatory, disciplinary and investigatory proceedings, and in guiding our clients through the particular challenges presented by parallel domestic and cross-border civil and disciplinary proceedings.
Our contentious experience includes defending firms sued in small to multimillion-pound claims, and dealing with disputes covering the full range of audit, tax, advisory, valuation and insolvency services provided by accountants. We are also experienced in handling claims concerning allegations of failure by the auditors to detect fraud, a specialised area requiring specific expertise with regards to auditors’ reports.
We work with a number of accountancy firms in relation to their employment matters, partnership disputes and team moves.
On the non-contentious side, we offer a range of services for the largest international networks as well as for smaller firms, including risk management implications for global networks, and insurance and reinsurance captive arrangements under the different legal and regulatory regimes in which professional networks operate.
