Initial assessments
We are aware that circumstances can arise in which there is an urgent need for the key issues of a case to be reviewed. These include instances where there may be doubt as to whether an accounting expert can make a cost-effective contribution or whether a single expert has identified and considered all aspects of the matter.

Our Limited Scope Initial Assessment service is designed for precisely such circumstances. Under this service, for an agreed fixed fee, we review the evidence and other material provided to us and deliver a written response within an agreed timetable on a no commitment basis. In our experience, these reviews identify the key issues that are crucial to success.
