Forensic Accounting and Expert Witness

We provide forensic accounting services both in civil and criminal matters. Our team at Moore Recovery is well-versed in forensic methodologies and litigation support with decades of experience and expertise in appointments as qualified expert to investigate, testify, give evidence and provide forensic accounting services to clients including the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC), the Commercial Crime Bureau (CCB), the Official Receiver's Office, the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) and the Legal Aid Department in Hong Kong.

Our expert acted for the (then) Attorney General's Office in the landmark money laundering case which is the first of its kind in Hong Kong, in which the the defendants were prosecuted on charges of money laundering of the proceeds from drug trafficking concerning approximately 200 kilograms of heroin in New York in 1987.  The defendants were found guilty of a total of six charges and both of them were subsequently sentenced to 12 years in prison.  The Hong Kong government also seized over HK$130 million as a result of the investigation.

We also acted as expert forensic accountant for the Department of Justice to prepare an investigation report in relation to the defendant who had allegedly laundered money in his personal bank accounts as well as some other companies' bank accounts under his control.  The money involved in the companies' bank accounts was in the sum of approximately HK$1.7 billion and related to an international criminal cartel which was also under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in the United States and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

Besides regulatory bodies and law enforcement agencies, we also acted for clients in their commercial cases and provided reports and opinions that could be used by them for their own use or as part of their legal case.
