Traditionally forensic finance practices require rigorous investigation of financial records in order to substantiate expert reports and testimony. Recent developments point to an increased demand for specialized ancillary and integrated services, utilizing a lateral approach in delivering quantitative and qualitative solutions. This early coordination between forensic experts allows for broad insight between forensic accountants, clinical, behavioural and industrial psychologists and related medical practitioners. This coordinated approach is providing meaningful context for quantitative discovery, allowing for more focused financial analysis and hence more objective conclusions. The resultant formulation of joint strategy delivers a platform for mediation options and settlements avoiding lengthy, costly disputes & litigation. Accordingly this new green hat approach provides a broad set of benefits to experts and the sector in delivering a sound basis for investigation, negotiation and possible settlements.
