Forensic Accounting and Fraud

Forensic accounting

At SHJ we have significant expertise when it comes to dealing with fraud investigation, prevention and forensic accounting.

We are able to offer a cost effective service led by our Head of Forensic and Dispute Services who has previously acted as an experienced expert witness in court on issues relating to business valuations, commercial disputes, criminal and fraud cases, insurance claims, matrimonial relief cases and personal injury claims.

However we believe that court is the last resort so are able to assist with mediations, expert determinations and arbitrations.

SHJ are used to dealing with and helping to resolve the cases where other firms may feel they have little chance of identifying circumstances and effects on quantum relevant to the case.

We take the time to understand the business disruption caused by the circumstances and the practical options available whether working with individual clients or businesses.

Whether you have a loss of earnings, a loss of profits, a business valuation need, a contract dispute, a confiscation of assets claim or a fraud, Fraser Russell can assist.

Our services include:

Fraud prevention

Unfortunately fraud is an all too common occurrence in today's world. The National Fraud Authority estimated fraud costs the UK over £73billion a year. Fraud can occur in any organisation, large or small, and can have a detrimental effect - often resulting in low staff moral, a decline in profitability, reputational damage and in some instances the closure of businesses.

At Shreeve Hallam Jones we have experienced fraud practitioners who created and managed the fraud investigation department on the world's largest insurance litigation scheme worth over £8billion.

Any business is susceptible to fraud and your systems and procedures need to be robust enough to identify and prevent the ever evolving threats.


We use a fraud risk analysis framework to help identify your organisation's key system and procedures. Using the outcome of this framework we can identify and mitigate any weaknesses susceptible to fraud.


Once we have identified the organisations weaknesses, we will work with the company to integrate Key Fraud Indicators (KFIs) into the systems and procedures. These KFIs will act as alarm bells in the event the company is subject to any fraudulent acts.

We will assist the company in creating or updating its policy on fraud prevention, detection and investigation.
