This involved extensive financial analysis including model calibration via the Monte Carlo model using Brownian motion to generate simulated share price paths.

Another notable matter includes a £200 million forensic investigation, which includes tracing fraudulent proceeds associated with the fraud allegation against a group of property-owning companies spread across London.
