09 November 2022 2 min. read

TM Financial Forensics (TMF), a San Francisco-headquartered disputes consulting firm, has been acquired by HKA, a global risk and disputes consultancy.

Founded in 2010, TMF supports clients across industries in all phases of the litigation process. The firm delivers consulting and expert testimony services in forensic accounting and economics, construction quantum, delay and technical, government contracts, and commercial damages.

TMF has approximately 65 professionals and offices in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Lafayette, CA, and Chicago.

HKA’s acquisition of TMF will expand the London-based firm’s US operations and will add complementary expertise – including an IP practice with damages and valuation expertise across industries. The move will also add TMF’s expertise in fair reasonable and non-discriminatory rate determinations for telecom, automotive, and high tech in the US, UK, and China.

The TMF acquisition follows HKA’s 2019 purchase of The Kenrich Group, which bolstered its dispute resolution practice in the US.

“TMF joining HKA is another major milestone for the Americas Group," said Frank Giunta, HKA partner and head of Americas. "Our capabilities in intellectual property and patent litigation are also significantly enhanced in addition to adding complementary resources in other practice areas."

HKA has 17 offices in US, as well as locations in the EMEA and APAC regions. The firm has more than 1,000 consultants in 18 countries delivering expert, claims, and advisory services for capital projects and infrastructure; forensic accounting and commercial damages services for contracts; and consulting services for companies working on US federal government contracts.

“We have built a highly successful national business by providing clients with the highest quality of service and expertise,” said Paul Meyer, president of TMF. “As an independent and global provider of multi-disciplinary expert services, HKA is best placed to enhance our services and extend them to a wider client base. We look forward to contributing to the sustainable growth of this world-leading business."
