I have 14 years' experience of forensic accounting work in a range of areas including expert witness, fraud investigation and international arbitration.
For the past 5 years, I have been principally working for Grant Thornton’s competition services team working on a large number of monitoring trustee cases in state aid, merger control and anti-trust matters. This includes the monitoring of large, complex and multi-jurisdictional divestment remedies, including acting in Divestment Trustee appointments. As part of my work, I have principally reported to the UK Competition and Markets Authority (and its predecessor bodies) and the European Commission, with some experience reporting to other competition regulators including the Competition Commission of Singapore and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
I was seconded to the UK Serious Fraud Office for over 3 years as part of its investigation into individuals and UK companies who were alleged to have paid kickbacks to the Government of Iraq in relation to transactions under the United Nations Oil-for-Food Programme. My work was commended both the judge and a leading QC.
I have been involved in the development and delivery of a training programme focussing on Forensic core skills, both to colleagues in the UK firm and to Grant Thornton International members working within the Forensic space.
