            I am head of international arbitration, acting as an expert witness on international arbitrations for Grant Thornton. I also have a sector focus on energy-related work across the firm.

            I’ve focused on investment in the energy, natural resources and infrastructure sector, often in emerging markets and from a private equity point of view. This has taken me on a number of assignments in Europe, Latin America, Africa, Middle East, Asia and Eastern Europe/Russia/CIS region. I’m fluent in Spanish but also speak some Portuguese and French, and have a basic understanding of German and Italian.

            I’ve acted on behalf of national governments, large corporate companies and entrepreneurs in international arbitrations and litigation ranging up to US$50 billion+ in size. I’ve also acted in large-scale investigations (eg, the UK company for Madoff) on behalf of parties such as a regulatory agency and company liquidators, including using my language capabilities to track down specific information and links not otherwise available.

            My other areas of expertise include: business plan evaluations and business valuations in the energy sector, due diligence, shareholder disputes, investigations into fraud and other investigations.

            I’ve previously led the energy community for Grant Thornton's international network, been the Chairman of TheCityUK's Brazil and Latin America committees, and been a member of UKTI's PPP Export Advisory Group.
