I am a Partner in the forensic accounting services team at Menzies. I trained and qualified as a Chartered Accountant with EY in 2009 and hold a degree in Economics from the University of Bath.
My experience covers many aspects of accounting, valuation, and financial matters, including breach-of-contract and loss-of-profits claims, professional negligence claims, minority-shareholder and joint-venture disputes, and claims arising following acquisitions and sales of businesses. I am often consulted on contentious and non-contentious business valuations.
Working closely with solicitors, barristers, funders, insolvency practitioners and regulators, I have covered many business sectors with significant experience in the financial services sector.
I am often instructed by legal referrers to act as an expert accountant in civil and criminal matters in various Courts, usually as party expert, but also as single joint expert. In addition, I act as advisor in disputes outside of a formal expert witness instruction, and often pre litigation. I have also undertaken expert determinations.
I regularly undertake fraud and insolvency related investigations. This includes financial investigations for corporate and public sector entities and for insolvency practitioners, as well as part of expert witness instructions.
