London, 11 Mar 2015 -- PwC announced today that Kennedy, the leading consulting research and advisory firm, has rated PwC as a market leader, with the broadest and deepest capabilities in the market in Forensics and Dispute Advisory Financial Consulting.

According to the report's author, Matt Lyons "PwC is one of a handful of Forensic Investigator providers capable of investigating financial crime or regulatory infractions in the world's largest corporations. There is no project that is too big for the practice.."
