Fraud Insolvency Division at Grant Thornton UK

Sheffield, United Kingdom

About Me

I worked at Zolfo Cooper LLP for 4.5 years working with liquidations, large trading Administrations and complex pre-packaged deals.

I'm currently working as a Manager in Grant Thornton's Fraud Insolvency Division (FInD) focussing on insolvency processes as part of some wrongdoing/fraud.

We work on behalf of the victims, typically creditors, of such wrongdoing and attempt to identify/trace assets and make recoveries for the benefit of creditors in all insolvent scenarios including administrations, liquidations and bankruptcies.

We work alongside solicitors and insurers and typically, collectively all act under a conditional fee agreement (CFA) basis due to the uncertain nature of the work.

Examples of the type of work we do are insolvencies involving:

  • VAT fraud/Carousel Fraud/Missing trader Intra Community (MTIC) Fraud
  • Tax evasion/deliberate concealment
  • Misfeasance/breach of duty claims against directors and office holders of companies
  • Asset tracing
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Fraudulent/dishonest assistance claims
  • Land banking
  • Proceeds of Crime cases
  • Insolvency Practitioner bond claims
