Louisa Plumb Associate Director Manchester +44 (0)161 953 6355

I am an experienced forensic accountant with over 13 years’ experience in both expert witness and advisory engagements. I focus on valuations (in relation to matrimonial proceedings, shareholder disputes and compulsory purchase orders), contractual disputes, loss of profits claims and commercial disputes more generally.

I have worked on disputes ranging in value from the tens of thousands to the hundreds of millions. Some of my more interesting assignments include:

  • acting for HMRC on a multi-million pound VAT fraud investigation which resulted in substantial prison sentences for the main defendants;
  • valuation of a rare and antiquarian bookshop for matrimonial proceedings;
  • providing advice regarding a claim for losses against the estate of a decease Russian Oligarch
  • an ICC Arbitration concerning financing costs due in a construction dispute.

In addition to client facing work, I lead our Matrimonial Survey.

Outside of work, most of my time is spent enjoying the chaos of two young children, and if time allows, fitting in some sort of exercise.
