Economics & Forensic Advisory

Economics & Forensic advisory The advisory areas we cover within economics and forensic include but are not limited to:
economics and competition, expert witness, valuations, international arbitration, disputes, fraud and investigations, forensic technology & business intelligence.

Companies need experts who can advise on a complex range of threats and opportunities in this ever-changing environment. River Partnership works with consulting firms to identify experts with economic, financial or accounting expertise to advise on a range of issues. Those experts assist law firms, companies and government agencies to understand the challenges and opportunities they face. They provide micro-economic theory and statistical, econometric and financial expertise to approach complex and challenging business and policy issues. They offer rational explanations, projections and evaluations based on the laws of economics.

In the rapidly changing and inconsistent regulatory environment, contentious issues arise. Government and corporate clients need consulting experts who have testified.  We have assisted our clients in identifying and recruiting experts who have local and international experience in some of the most complex disputes.  We have also assisted in identifying and recruiting experts with specialist securities litigation expertise; advisory relating to securities fraud, insider trading, market manipulation and other forms of securities litigation.

The forensic accounting market has seen a great deal of activity in recent years; the growth of regulatory compliance requirements and the increase in fraud has seen a related growth in demand for forensic accountants and forensic technologists.  We also assist companies who wish to hire consultants with experience of investigations and structured/unstructured data acquisition or analysis and forensic accounting services to the global legal and business sectors. We have placed former regulatory and law enforcement officials, technology experts and forensic accountants who conduct these assignments around the world. Consultants may also have experience assimilating intelligence for reputation assessment and intellectual property protection to assist their clients to protect assets, remediate compliance and make informed decisions.

The market is intimate in the more mature markets of the UK and the US.  We know many of these professionals personally, and are able to quickly and confidentially approach them with your opportunity.  We will be able to benchmark your platform and reward structure against your competitors.  We will advise in a first briefing what the correct message and ‘sell’ should be out to the market about your organisation.
