Forensic Investigations

Forensic & Litigation Consulting Practice

The Forensic Investigations team at FTI Consulting is an internationally recognised leader in independent investigation services to the business and legal community.

We sit within FTI Consulting’s Forensic and Litigation Consulting segment, and work collaboratively with a range of teams including business intelligence, data analytics and computer forensics to undertake investigations involving corporate fraud, whistle-blowing, tracing of assets, and bribery and corruption allegations.

What we do

We work with law firms, banks, regulatory bodies and companies in the UK and around the world. We have particular expertise in working with internal and external counsel and boards of directors and senior managers in a wide range of industries.

The projects we work on require us to address issues which often have a critical impact on businesses.

We aim to answer questions such as:

  • Who authorised the transaction?
  • What was the chronology of events?
  • When did the losses commence?
  • Where did the monies or assets go?
  • Why didn’t anyone spot the problem earlier?
  • How does the company ensure it does not happen again?

As a Consultant in the Forensic Investigations team, you will be exposed to a broad range of forensic and investigative work from day one, while at the same time studying for your Associate Chartered Accountant (ACA) qualification with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).

The kind of work you do will be project-specific, but will often fall under one of the following:

  • Conducting investigative research into companies and individuals, either in preparation for or as part of project work
  • Performing high-level and detailed analysis of an entity’s financial records
  • Reviewing an entity’s internal and external communications to identify patterns and corroborate financial findings
  • Summarising your findings for team members orally or in the form of memoranda, presentations or reports
  • Attending project meetings with clients and their internal and external legal advisers
  • Assisting with investigative interviews.

You will have the opportunity to apply your skills and intellect to real-world financial and business issues which will help develop you into an industry-leading consultant. You will collaborate with team members on project design, perform research and analysis, and develop insights and conclusions.

We can also offer you:

  • Support through your Associate Chartered Accountant (ACA) qualification as part of a three-year training contract
  • Access to our comprehensive in-house learning and development programme
  • The chance to be part of interesting and challenging projects that will develop your technical and professional capabilities, including secondments to our clients
  • The opportunity to work on assignments abroad or in collaboration with other members of our global team
  • A well-defined career path with regular appraisals and professional guidance
