Forensic Accounts in Chesterfield.

 

All forensic services are personally delivered by Tim Leeman. Tim is a long standing partner/director within Mitchells

The majority of these assignments are carried out upon the instructions of Solicitors either as a party appointed expert or as a single joint expert. A number of instructions have also been received from Insolvency Practitioners on matters relating to the actions of insolvent companies and their directors

Tim is an associate member of the academy of experts and is fully conversant with CPR part 35 and the overriding duty of the expert to the court

The vast majority of forensic appointments are handled totally by Tim throughout and as such instructing Solicitors are guaranteed a well researched, comprehensive and timely report. Only on a significant and lengthy report would assistance be required from any other member of the Mitchells team and at all times Tim recognises the need for himself to “take ownership” of any such work

Several instructions have been received from Solicitors operating “off patch” very often this has been of great assistance to the parties involved in ensuring total impartiality

Because of the depth of Mitchells experience within the care home sector Tim has received instructions on matters relating to them

Examples of the appointments undertaken include:

  • Share valuations in matrimonial breakdowns
  • Income and cash generation by businesses often in a matrimonial breakdown
  • Corporate fraud
  • The appropriateness of accounting treatment adopted
  • Taxation matters

 

Because Tim acts for a mixed portfolio of corporate clients he has a breadth of experience covering a wide variety of sectors

Forensic assignments are usually undertaken on a fixed fee basis up to the final report stage
