Details :

Many aspects in forensic accountancy have evolved since Sr Benny K B Kwok first attended the High Court as an expert witness 20 years ago.  Forensic accountants render litigation support and expert opinion in various types of contentious cases covering accounting irregularities, commercial crimes, directors’ wrongdoings, shareholders’ deadlocks, business valuation, construction disputes, land resumptions, personal injuries, matrimonial breakdowns, professional negligence and breach of contracts.

Whether it is a dispute, fraud, compliance issue or regulatory investigation, problems often spiral out of control and cause severe damages.  Failure to appreciate the scope and expertise of forensic accountancy can cost owners, contractors, financiers, facilities managers and other stakeholders billions of dollars and even their liberty.

This webinar seeks to give an overview of forensic accountancy and the extent to which forensic accountants can help surveyors in litigation and dispute resolution.
