BDO has one of the most successful forensic practices in the UK.

We offer clients wide-ranging expertise in dispute resolution, professional negligence, investigations and forensic technology. We work with UK and international companies, professional firms, regulators, governments and Not-for-Profit organisations.

There is no such thing as a typical assignment in Forensic Services. Our work can involve providing litigation support to clients and lawyers, acting as expert accountants in legal cases, investigating instances of fraud and undertaking regulatory investigations. So if you like variety and regularly facing new challenges, then Forensic Services could be for you.

We work in the UK and overseas. Team assignments might include:

  • Providing expert accountancy services to companies involved in disputes
  • Reviewing professional negligence claims made against other large audit firms
  • Performing regulatory investigations for government departments and agencies
  • Quantifying losses arising from contractual disputes
  • Acting as an independent accountant engaged to provide a determination on disputed issues between two companies or bodies

To succeed in Forensic Services you will need to be a good problem-solver and have excellent analytical skills. Accuracy and attention to detail are vital in the work we do, as is the ability to communicate clearly and effectively, both orally and through written work. Much of our work is team based, so good team-working skills are essential.

As part of your training in Forensic Services you will be seconded to our Audit and Assurance department for up to six months each year. This will enable you to develop a wide range of skills and knowledge that you can apply in your studies and in your future work.
