Lotus Amity is an accredited Business Valuation
Specialist & Forensic Accountant Specialist with
Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand.

We are instructed by legal professionals, accountants and business owners to provide reports relating to disputes, restructuring and transactions. The reports are often used in litigation and meet court reporting requirements.



Each engagement has a story. We carefully research, investigate, analyse and examine the numbers behind the story.



Once we have analysed and understood the story and the numbers we then prepare a clear and comprehensive independent report. Our reports comply with the integrity, objectivity, confidentiality and technical requirements of the Accounting Professional & Ethical Standards and the International Valuation Standards.



Through analysis and clarity, we ultimately seek to create value. This value comes through providing independent, objective and fully supported opinions.





Lotus Amity provides accounting services in disputes. We help to resolve financial issues.

Lotus Amity provide the following forensic accounting expertise and skills:

  • Technical knowledge: derived from training, study and experience, for example, business valuation and quantifying damages
  • Investigation skills: collecting, analysing and evaluating
  • Communication skills: critically thinking and interpreting

We stay objective and provide fully supported opinions.

George Beaton

We are a small business and received A1 advice and support from Simon acting as an expert consultant to the directors in relation to a misleading and deceptive conduct matter.

John Forde,
Special Counsel,

Simon provided expert witness evidence in a matter that brought about a decision in our client’s favour for damages in a body corporate management rights dispute. His analysis is of the highest calibre which led many to say “where did you get this guy from”. I was extremely lucky to have been introduced to Simon and I highly recommend him to anyone requiring forensic accounting services.

Mike Guyomar
CA MBA MA, Director,
Baton Advisory

“Valuation are not a formulaic exercise where the number pops out at the bottom. A good valuer needs insight and the ability to interpret the nuances of the commercial situation. They also need resilience and integrity to make an objective call and not be influenced by external pressures. Simon Cook has all these attributes and is one of Australia’s most experienced and qualified Business Valuers. Unlike most technical specialists, he is able to communicate complex issues with clarity and turn the complex into the understandable.”

Richard White,
Managing Partner,

Simon has been in the financial forensic and valuation profession for several decades and he brings with him a plethora of experience in dealing with engagements across a wide variety of industries and contentious issues. His knowledge is at the very forefront of the valuation profession, and he achieves this by continuously subjecting himself to professional qualifications to ensure he is abreast of the very latest valuation methodologies. The combination of his experience and knowledge, along with this integrity and impartiality, make him a unique and valuable addition to any forensic or valuation engagement. His reports are concise and easy to understand, and his fees are reasonable.
