I'm head of our proceeds of crime team, specialising in the management and tracing and recovery of assets. I regularly take appointments as Court Appointed Receiver in criminal and non-criminal matters, as well as contentious insolvency appointments.
I joined the firm in 2008 and have over 30 years' of experience in insolvency and have specialised in contentious insolvency and investigating the proceeds of crime for 20 years.
I qualified as a chartered accountant with a leading professional services firm, starting in audit, but transferred to the far more exciting world of recovery just in time for the recession of the late 1980s.
Recent experience include a hostile appointment as liquidator in a multi-million-pound tax fraud, and working on numerous 'boiler room' frauds: ranging from premier wine to property investments in Brazil. My meticulous approach has earned me recognition as a world leader in the field of asset tracing and recovery. I've even been described as the 'go-to' person for court-appointed receivership cases.
I regularly speak at conferences on fraud and how to recover assets, whether in the UK or overseas.
In my spare time, I love to cook and try my hand at most cuisines with varying degrees of success. While cooking I enjoy listening to music, particularly my collection of vinyl.
