Over the last few years the accounting profession has seen a diversification of the industry into specialties. Financial planning, forensic accounting and insolvency are a few specialties that are becoming whole professions in their own right. The principals of mclaren knight anticipated this diversification and accordingly have studied and attained appropriate registrations to provide our clients and professional partners with specialist advice in relation to insolvency and forensic accounting.

Our experts are trained to recognize the issues requiring attendance, and to provide efficient and effective solutions to resolve the problem. Our teams, be it audit & assurance, forensic & advocacy or insolvency & recovery, are on hand to optimize your, or your clients’ position. In short, no matter the advice, you will benefit from advice that will both expeditiously identify the matters at hand and offer commercial and realistic solutions.
