About Us - Kilby Fox Forensic Accountants

Kilby Fox formed a specialist accounting function in 1990.

We aim to deliver excellence, professionalism and consistency in our approach when interrogating financial data. Ensuring communication of financial information is concise and clear in assisting lawyers and other clients to resolve disputes.

In 1999 Kilby Fox along with other accountancy firms, recognised the growing need for forensic accounting and formed the Network of Independent Forensic Accountants (NIFA).

NIFA is a body of individual accountancy practices pooling their experience and knowledge across the UK and EIRE to ensure that lawyers, insurers, police and individuals receive a high quality, consistent and cost effective service.

As well as our own dedicated team, we can draw on the expertise of all the Forensic Expert members of NIFA ensuring that we are continually improving and developing the services that we offer which include Criminal, Matrimonial, Commercial Litigation, Professional Negligence and Personal Injury.   

Kilby Fox is based in Northampton and serves the Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire areas.
