Forensic Accountants

Our forensic accounting department provides a level of litigation support to solicitors and barristers throughout the country, we are largely  unrivalled by any other independent practice  in Galway city and county, and our forensic accounting services are often delivered more economically and efficiently than many of our larger competitors.

We bring the requisite commercial experience and financial expertise to bear on a range of legal cases with clients receiving a more personal service with direct partner involvement than they might receive from a larger accountancy firm.

Graham Burke CPA heads the forensic accounting services of the firm, and as well as being a qualified accountant, holds a number of qualifications in law , he has acted as  an expert witnesses, and has  acted on numerous accounting and commercial matters for a variety of cases, including audit negligence, fraud, business valuations and divorce and commercial disputes.

Recent forensic valuation assignments include:

  • Sale of companies
  • Sale of shares
  • Restricted securities
  • IP rights for book publisher
  • IFRS 3 valuation on business combinations
  • Intellectual Property
  • Goodwill
  • Credit Union transfer of engagements


Other forensic accounting assignments include:

  • Loss of profits claims
  • Employee fraud
  • Investigation of hidden assets

Much of the demand for our forensic accounting services comes from regional locations where local legal practices are less able to find local accountancy firms with the requisite skills to provide expert litigation support.
