I have acted as an expert and given evidence in court and tribunal drawing on my 40 years as an accountant including 20 as an audit partner. Key issues I have addressed include the quality of audit work carried prior to a business failure, alleged fraud or misconduct. Other expert assignments have included;
• investigation into allegations of accounting misstatements in connection with £bn civil litigation and regulatory investigations in the UK and in the US
• testifying expert on the tracing of monies in a £250m fraud
• reviewing and challenging the support for a warranty claim arising from an accounting "black hole"
• testifying and advisory expert in connection with disputes arising from sale and purchase agreements
• testifying expert on the accounting treatment of tax schemes
I am a non executive director of a UK listed business and Chair of the Audit and Risk Committee.
