Commercial disputes

Select a specialist or choose a new specialism by using the links in the key.

ICAEW’s online register of Forensic specialists was, until 2016, a useful source for those seeking a chartered accountant to act as a forensic accountant, expert witness or to give background advice as a shadow expert. Those on the register had passed the stringent requirements to become accredited under the ICAEW scheme before its closure in 2016 having then demonstrated the necessary standard of experience and competence.

Please note that this register is not currently maintained. Applying for accreditation was at all times voluntary and there may be other accountants of equal expertise and competence who will not be on this register.
