Lucy Philipson Associate Director Leeds +44 (0)113 2002539

I am a member of the corporate intelligence practice within our forensic and investigation services team, having previously specialised in forensic accounting since the earlier 2000s.

Within our corporate intelligence practice, I have a particular focus on integrity due diligence assignments, litigation support and assisting on wider investigations. I enjoy the challenge of identifying and piecing together information. At times I liken it to a jigsaw, but without the picture as a guide!

Before making the move into corporate intelligence, I spent nearly a decade working on forensic investigations. Most notably, I spent nearly three years investigating a global multi-billion-dollar fraud, leading the team investigating the transactions alleged to have been key to the misappropriation of funds. My focus switched to investigations following a year’s secondment at the Serious Fraud Office in London, where I was responsible for managing a team of financial analysts involved in the investigation of a large investment fraud.

Early on in my forensic career, I was involved in the preparation of expert witness and advisory reports on a variety of different assignments.

Outside of work, I spend much of my time ferrying two sporty children to their various sporting activities. When I can, I enjoy cycling, running and bouldering and sport climbing.
