Forensic Focus - May 2011
Cutting through the smoke and mirrors
Welcome to the Autumn Issue of Forensics Focus.
In this issue we are focusing on three very topical and busy areas of our practice.
Prior to the 22nd of February 2011, business interruption claims and the assessment of financial aspects of claims only arose irregularly usually relating to contentious issues (typically allegations of fraud). Many of our Christchurch clients had never made a claim under their business interruption policy and many were unfamiliar with what they were covered for. Jason Weir reflects on the key financial issues that may come across at claim time.
Jon Pearse reviews new ways to secure and protect electronic data in businesses and finally, I look at current trends in alternative dispute resolution of commercial problems when things go wrong and you are headed for court.
We hope you enjoy the read.
