Forensic Accounts

“Welcome to the ‘Forensic Accounting Department’ where our accounting, auditing and investigative skills all come together”

Headed up by Academy of Experts member Tim Leeman.

Tim and his team regularly work on complex financial and business related  cases for a variety of clients, including barristers and insurance companies, supplying them with forensic accounting and litigation support services.

Here at Mitchells we like to approach forensic accounting a little differently,  looking beyond the numbers and focusing more on the reality of the business situation.

Whether it’s dealing with the share valuations in a matrimonial breakdown, corporate fraud or complex taxation matters, we are here to offer not just the numbers but also help and advice based on over 150 years of experience.

Working on a fixed fee basis up to the final report stage, Mitchells has a reputation for delivering exceptional client service and value for money when it comes to forensic instruction.

This may include gathering financial information to assist in divorce settlement cases.

One testimonial demonstrating how we add real value… 

“I instructed Tim Leeman on a complicated probate matter where a Director of a thriving Company died very suddenly who played a key role in the running of the Company and owned 50% of the Shareholding.

Tim was instructed as an expert to value the Company for probate purposes and sale purposes. Tim provided first class advice throughout this case. He provided a supportive, caring and compassionate service to the family involved at such a difficult time in their lives.

Tim’s knowledge, negotiation skills and techniques resulted in us securing a brilliant result for our clients in the sale of the Company Shares and actually saved the Company £190,000 in Corporation Tax, resulting in an extra £95,000 being recovered for the estate.

Not only did Tim provide a first class service to my clients; he also provided that same level of service to my colleagues and I who were working on the case. Nothing was too much trouble for Tim on this case.

I have worked with Tim on other cases since and will continue to recommend him to my clients.”
