Russell Niven Associate Director London +44 (0)20 7728 2127

I am an experienced ACCA qualified accountant with 15 years’ experience in the advisory sector, specifically forensic accounting work which has included fraud and professional negligence investigations, international arbitration, and expert determination cases.

Since 2017 I have specialised in competition services, working on a number of monitoring trustee cases principally focused on merger control and anti-trust matters. My role has seen me prepare reports for submission to regulatory authorities including the UK Competition and Markets Authority, the European Commission, the Canadian Competition Bureau, and the United States Department of Justice.

My experience in competition-related cases includes complex multi-jurisdictional divestment remedies in the agrochemicals sector, having worked on four significant merger control cases between 2017 and 2019. I have also reported in financial services state-aid cases, and have experience in monitoring the adherence to behavioural commitments within the automotive and entertainment sectors.

When I am not at work I can usually be found indulging my passion for home brewing, or in my studio making music. I also thoroughly enjoy watching a variety of sports including football.
