I have been working in the Forensic Accountancy field for over 11 years providing forensic accounting services to Law enforcement agencies, solicitors, barristers and public authorities.

I have a good balance of experience as acting as an expert for both prosecution and defence teams on separate cases. I hold unique experience gained from 9 years of Prosecution work whilst working for Law enforcement and now predominantly acting for defence whilst working in practice. This enables me to truly see the case from both sides.

The criminal work I have completed includes:
Pre-conviction investigations and Confiscation proceedings (POCA)
Fraud Investigations including complex multi handed conspiracies
H M Revenue & Customs Investigations, including MTIC, benefit fraud, tax and VAT evasion
Money Laundering, Drug trafficking & Human trafficking
Allegations under the Theft Act, Fraud Act, Proceeds of Crime Act, Companies and Insolvency Act

The work I carry out involves a number of tasks, including, interpreting mass volumes of complex data, reconciliation of accounts, critically reviewing the work of the opposing party, identifying and tracing criminal assets, preparation of expert financial information and analysis, reconstructing accounting records, attending conferences with Solicitors, Counsel, Defendants, Clients, Law enforcement agencies and other Government bodies.

I have attended Court on a number of occasions and giving oral evidence as an expert witness on:
Frau and Money Laundering cases, Human trafficking cases and large conspiracy cases. These are a combination of acting for Defence and Prosecution.

I work as part of a team conducting both criminal and civil assignments and can be instructed on cases Nationwide. We currently have offices based in Leeds, Manchester and London.
