About Vero Consulting
Vero Consulting’s team includes highly experienced forensic accounting professionals with over 100 years of combined experience working on significant forensic accounting assignments.
We are highly skilled and qualified chartered accountants and expert witnesses that specialise in providing a wide range of forensic accounting, contentious business valuation and investigation services.
Our experts have presented reports and given oral expert evidence in a wide range of cases heard in the UK civil courts and tribunals, UK criminal courts, and at arbitrations in the UK and overseas. Whilst we are generally appointed to act for one of the parties to a dispute, we also regularly acted as single joint experts (SJEs).
Our reports are always clear and reasoned, however complex the subject matter. On the rare occasions when our evidence is not accepted before a hearing, you can be assured that all our expert witnesses have experience of having been cross-examined on numerous occasions and our evidence will be presented robustly. Our experts have been praised by judges and leading counsel for their performance in courts, tribunals and at arbitrations.
Vero Consulting – basis of charges
We aim to ensure our work adds value to our client’s case, while recognising our responsibilities as expert witnesses means our ultimate duty will be to the court or tribunal. Our basis of charging means that we can work cost effectively on large as well as smaller matters where the issue may involve low hundreds of thousands. When we are not acting as expert witnesses, we will consider working on a contingent or semi-contingent basis.
We are always willing to review documents on a “without commitment” basis. Feel free to contact us by clicking here.
Vero Consulting – other services
Our expert witness and advisory specialists also regularly provide legal support as expert advisers to prepare or respond to claims where expert reports are not permitted (for example, where a court has not allowed expert evidence) and we provide expert advice where the court has insisted on a SJE. Where we are not instructed as the expert witness, we will consider undertaking matters on a contingent or semi-contingent basis.
In addition, our team undertake expert determinations, including appointments under the ICAEW President’s Nominations Scheme. These cases often involve the valuations of businesses, shares or disputes arising following the sale of businesses.
Our clients include solicitors, barristers, businesses, regulators, government departments and law enforcement agencies engaged in contentious matters.
