About Me

With over 14 years' experience within Grant Thornton's recovery and reorganisation team,  I have developed a broad range of experience, with particular focus on complex fraud assignments. I have managed investigations covering multiple jurisdictions, including a bankruptcy case concerning a cross jurisdictional mortgage fraud. This required multinational asset tracing and recovery actions, as well as varying an existing Restraint Order. Within my role I secure hidden asset, complex and fraud related insolvency appointments in the personal and corporate insolvency field. I provide insolvency support to creditors from inception through to a formal insolvency appointment. I am responsible for assisting financial service, utility and individual clients.

I have experience of managing various investigations, notably investment scam cases, which are increasingly being used by fraudsters to target potential investors, cases include wine investments, land banking and carbon credits. In addition to this, I have high profile corporate fraud experience following the recovery of worldwide assets from the liquidation of an overseas offshore investment scheme plan, which collapsed with a deficit in excess of £40 million.

I recently managed an Anti-Counterfeiting Initiative which demonstrated the merits of using certain techniques and recovery actions to brand holders. I presented to the members of The Federation Against Software Theft where we discussed the benefit of working alongside brand holders, Trading Standards and other law enforcement agencies. The purpose of the initiative was to ensure that money obtained through illegal activities, such as counterfeiting,is identified and confiscated using the Proceeds of Crime Act and Insolvency Act.  I also presented on the topic of 'bankruptcy tourism' and how Fraud Insolvency Division successfully deal with cross jurisdictional bankruptcies.

I am a keen adventurer and like to holiday with the odd mountain climb thrown in such as Mount Kinabalu or Mount Kilimanjaro. Although these days it is more like Mount Snowdon via a train!
