Expert Witness Snapshot

I am a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, with longstanding professional experience in the financial affairs, valuation and business economics of owner-managed and family businesses. I have provided expert witness, expert advisory and dispute resolution services since 1994. I was formerly a senior employee of KPMG in the South West; later I had responsibility for the forensic and litigation support services of the national practice known as Haines Watts for whom I am a consultant. I have prepared many expert reports and have given evidence in court.

I am also a freelance lecturer and tutor in the financial aspects of divorce, and the evaluation of personal injury and clinical negligence claims. I am a tutor for the Academy of Experts .
