David Sowden Director Leeds +44 (0)113 200 2552

For over twenty years I have been a forensic accountant expert specialising in investigating large and complex fraud and money laundering cases. I have given evidence in the Royal Court in Jersey on a number of occasions on behalf of the Attorney General of Jersey. I have also acted in Guernsey and the Isle of Man as well as in the UK. I am a recognised expert forensic accountant on the UK National Crime Agency database.

I have acted on a number of high profile sensitive cases involving politically exposed persons, often involving corrupt payments, such as an overseas government minister who held several hundred million dollars in a complex web of trusts and associated companies. I was also the principal prosecution witness in the both the trial and confiscation hearing in Jersey’s most extensive and complicated money laundering prosecution.

Outside of work I am actively involved in the voluntary sectors where I provide both my time and accountancy skills to support the charitable objectives of a number of organisations.
