About

I am a Manager in the Forensic Services team at Menzies. I trained and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2009 and hold a first-class degree in Accounting and Finance. Prior to joining Menzies LLP in 2018,  I worked in a boutique forensic practice and prior to that, I worked in the forensic accounting department of another top 20 accountancy firm.

My work involves a wide range of forensic assignments, including assisting in the preparation of expert witness and advisory reports on both civil and criminal cases, with experience of working with both Claimants and Defendants.

My work involves a diverse range of forensic assignments, across a broad spectrum of business sectors, involving insolvency investigations, contractual and commercial disputes, valuations for succession planning, possible restructuring and shareholder disputes, business interruption and damages calculations for civil proceedings.

I have experience in attending experts’ meetings and assisting experts in giving evidence in the High Court and Crown Court. I also regularly attend legal conferences with Counsel and our instructing lawyers.
