Our Forensic Services team has been ranked in Band 2 in the 2021 Chambers and Partners Litigation Support Guide; the third consecutive year the firm has been recognised by the international legal directory.
Chris Osborne, Partner in our Forensic Services team, has this year also been recognised as a notable practitioner by the directory.
The guide, which is compiled by senior industry professionals, recognises firms for their client service, technical ability, and the depth of their team. It also relies on testimonials from clients and industry peers, with one noting of the team: “The forensic team at FRP is excellent in everything that they do. The firm is highly professional and very experienced in complex litigation. The team there understands the pressure and volatility of high-profile litigation – which helps enormously.”
The ranking bookends another successful year of growth for the team, during which it expanded its service offering thanks to the acquisition of forensic services firm Walton Dodge Forensic, as a part of the wider JDC Group based in East Anglia. Forensic specialists Jon Dodge and Fiona Hotston Moore joined as Partners as part of the acquisition.
Now in its sixth year, the Forensic Services team have also made a number of strategic appointments which saw team headcount grow by 25 per cent over the course of the last year. Adrian Coates joined the Forensic Technology team as a Director, alongside Forensic Services Assistant Managers, Lisa Mazzucotelli, Tom Arnold, and Fraser Anderson and Forensic Analyst, Brandon Chung.
Chris Osborne said: “We’re extremely proud to have been once again recognised for our breadth of experience, professionalism and strong relationships with our clients.
“We’re committed to providing exceptional support to our clients, and investment in our team is key to doing so. The last year has seen us significantly strengthen our offering, giving us the ability to work on a greater number of complex mandates, including international arbitrations, major accounting investigations, and cases requiring electronic discovery solutions – an area of real growth for us.”
