A leading forensic accountancy expert from Milsted Langdon has taken part in a talk with leading experts in cryptocurrency from law firm Royds Withy King to explore how the digital currency could affect future legal matters.
Roger Isaacs, Forensic Partner at Milsted Langdon took part in the roundtable discussion along with solicitors from Royds Withy King and outside experts in cryptocurrency.
The discussion, entitled Cryptocurrencies – Transparency, Treatment and Trust, allowed Roger to share his expertise on the subject of cryptocurrency investigations, particularly in regards to matrimonial cases.
Roger, who has commented on the emerging trend of cryptocurrency in forensic investigations in national publications – including The Times – helped the group explore how accountants could help to reveal digital currency and discussed actions that could be taken once assets were found.
Reflecting on the talk, Roger said: “While many are investing legitimately in cryptocurrency – despite its volatility – there are growing concerns that this new form of digital funding could be used to disguise or hide assets.
“I am glad that I was able to offer my expertise in this area and I certainly found the discussion enlightening. It is clear to me that this subject requires further investigation in future by me and my professional peers to ensure we can act in the best interests of our clients.”
As well as holding a role as Forensic Partner at Milsted Langdon, Roger is also National Technical Director of the Network of Independent Forensic Accountants (NIFA) and is a member of the Global Forensic Group within MGI Worldwide – a network consisting of more than 5,028 professionals in 85 different countries.
