I have 19 years' experience of forensic accounting work in a range of areas including expert witness, fraud investigation and international arbitration.
For the past ten years, I have been principally working for our competition services team working on a large number of monitoring trustee cases on state aid, merger control, and anti-trust matters. This includes the monitoring of large, complex and multi-jurisdictional divestment remedies, including acting in Divestment Trustee appointments.
As part of my work, I have principally reported to the UK Competition and Markets Authority (and its predecessor bodies) and the European Commission, with some experience reporting to other competition regulators including the Federal Trade Commission and CADE.
I was previously seconded to the UK Serious Fraud Office for over three years as part of its investigation into individuals and UK companies who were alleged to have paid kickbacks to the Government of Iraq in relation to transactions under the United Nations Oil-for-Food Programme. My work was commended both the judge and a leading QC.
Alongside my client work, I was involved in the development and delivery of a training programme focussing on core forensic accounting and investigation skills, both to colleagues in the UK firm and to forensic teams from other Grant Thornton International member firms.
