Director, Forensic Services

Richard Farmar


I am a Director in the forensic services team at Menzies. I am a Chartered Certified Accountant and Certified Fraud Examiner with experience working with both claimants and defendants.

I have experience in reviewing and preparing evidence for damages calculations, consequential loss claims, shareholder disputes, insolvency investigations and derivatives-related claims. I have also assisted with the provision of expert evidence on criminal cases involving fraud, theft and money laundering as well as POCA matters. 

My recent cases at Menzies include employee and charity fraud claims, a substantial insolvency investigation in the oil and gas industry, and loss of profits claims arising from SPA disputes and bank mis-selling.

Prior to joining Menzies LLP, I worked in the forensic accounting department of a top 10 accountancy firm and a global advisory firm where I worked extensively in the USA. I also worked in restructuring and insolvency for several years where I managed a varied portfolio of corporate and individual insolvencies with a strong emphasis on investigation and litigation matters.
