Barry Dean Associate Director London +44 (0)20 7184 4560

I first became involved in forensic accounting in 1991, dealing with a fraud involving an Insolvency Practitioner. I got 'the bug' and have been specialising in fraud, misconduct and black hole investigations for over 20 years. My particular focus is the public sector.

What forensic does is to shine a light into dark places and expose what has been hidden. To that end my role is to help public sector clients uncover the truth and then to appropriately react to it. Outcomes are to recover/save money for the public purse, limit reputational damage and to prevent reoccurrences.

I have extensive experience of working with clients in central and local government, education (higher and further), NHS and social housing. I regularly work with the police and have given evidence on behalf of the Serious Fraud Office.

When not walking the dog or badgering the kids to do their homework, I love to watch cricket. Unfortunately my dodgy knees prevent me from wielding the willow any more.
