What Expert Evidence

Expert opinion may be required in insolvency and reconstruction matters for valuations of insolvent company assets such as shares.

Forensic accounting experts may provide investigations into why insolvency occurred, especially in cases of white collar crime where directors are accused of breaching their duties.

Cost

The overall cost of expert opinion depends on the services required. Some of the key factors that affect the cost of advice include:

  • The need for a view or inspection of a location
  • The quantity of documentary material to be reviewed
  • Whether there are reports of other experts to be reviewed and commented on in detail
  • Whether there is a need for conferences with the expert either in person or by telephone/Skype
