With more than 30 years' experience in accounting, auditing and investigations, I now head up our new focus on professional negligence, investigating potential audit negligence and regulatory matters across all sectors. I am often instructed by lawyers, insurance companies, receivers or directly by corporates. I have extensive experience addressing financial reporting and accounting issues, and have worked with a wide range of listed and private international companies.
Having been national head of assurance at Grant Thornton and retaining a portfolio of audit clients, I am uniquely positioned to undertake my auditor negligence investigation work.
Key issues I regularly deal with include the role of auditors in failed organisations, claims regarding illegal dividends or balance sheet 'black holes', inappropriate intercompany transactions and fraud.
