Expert Witness Snapshot

I have spent the last 30 years providing forensic accounting and expert witness services to law firms and clients in matrimonial and commercial proceedings. I have been instructed in numerous Family cases involving companies in many different fields. I have given evidence in the High Court and the Central Family Court many times.  My reported cases are NA v MA [2006] EWHC 2900 (Fam); J v J [2009] EWHC 2654 (Fam); R v R [2009] EWHC 1267 (Fam), Goddard-Watts v Goddard-Watts [2016] EWHC 3000 (Fam) and CB v KB [2019] EWFC 78.

I have presented lectures on how to value companies and businesses in matrimonial proceedings; on tax issues relating to divorce; and on how to interpret company accounts to Family lawyers and barristers at Resolution conferences, Jordan Publishing conferences, Family Law Chambers (1 Hare Court, Queen Elizabeth Building and One King\'s Bench Walk) and at leading Family Law firms.
