What the team is known for

Berkeley Research Group is an attractive one-stop shop for legal solutions, with a strong forensic practice matching its supporting experts in the firm's global disputes group.

Strengths

"Forensic accounting is a big part of BRG's playbook - the firm mixes the investigations side of things with the forensic accounting elements better than basically anyone. That is fair."

"The team have shown themselves to be highly skilled and experienced in investigations. They have been extremely responsive and insightful in time-sensitive situations, and I was impressed by the technological solutions they used to identify critical evidence. They produced a highly credible investigation report which was used to support both criminal and civil proceedings."

Notable practitioners

Ben Johnson is a member of Berkeley Research Group's global investigations and strategic intelligence practice and is praised as an expert with a specialism in dealing with forensic issues arising out of fraud.

A source says: "He's brilliant and the best I've come across - very experienced and very diligent." A peer adds: "I'd have Ben at my company in a heartbeat. He's got a great practice and is leading the work over there."

Overview

Our professionals have extensive experience in accounting and financial reporting, including conducting forensic accounting analysis of financial records; reviewing technical accounting treatment under various accounting standards; and designing, evaluating and testing internal controls. We have led reviews and investigations into issues such as accounting manipulation, revenue recognition and the fair presentation of financial statements in the context of M&A transactions.

With experience as former corporate internal auditors, audit partners at international accounting firms and financial fraud investigators, our professionals have led internal and financial statement audits for multinational corporations and conducted forensic reviews throughout the EMEA region. This experience allows us to bring a deep understanding of business operations, processes, systems, internal controls and local business practices and risks to each assignment, enabling us to effectively analyse and evaluate accounting and financial information—and deliver robust opinions in disputes or regulatory enquiries.

Our experts have testified in judicial forums and jurisdictions in both criminal and civil matters, as well as in international arbitration. Our experience means we can quickly identify the core issues and build the evidence necessary to inform and support an investigation or dispute.
