Professional Negligence

Auditors' negligence

When businesses fail or are rendered unviable as a result of fraud, financial malfeasance or other dishonest conduct, scrutiny falls on the role and conduct of those professionals who may have deliberately or inadvertently facilitated deception. Investigating action taken by accountants and auditors in discharging their duties may uncover evidence of negligence, which may offer an opportunity to recouping some of the financial losses incurred in these contexts.

We have market leading Claimant side auditors' negligence practices both in London and Hong Kong, with broad industry sector experience. We have been involved in many of the recent high profile auditor negligence actions arising from fraud, financial scandals and corporate collapses in London, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands, and have been brought in as co-counsel to assist with auditors' negligence actions outside of our home jurisdictions.

Our teams of lawyers in London, Hong Kong and Singapore are supported by our in-house teams of forensic accountants and analysts. We work in close collaboration with each other, such that investigations and claims can be pursued 24/7, and we can harness the experience and expertise of a truly multi – jurisdictional team in dealing with the complex issues that often arise in the auditor's negligence actions.

Our auditors' negligence teams are led by Mark Davis and Jason Karas.
