I am a fully qualified accountant trained in the specialism of forensic accounting. My training enables me to assist in legal matters providing advice and expertise on accounting matters.

My work with family lawyers includes investigating hidden assets, valuation of companies, assistance in taxation matters and assistance with the resolution of financial disputes. This work is carried out as either a joint or single expert witness. My work is prepared in line with Part 25 of the Family Procedure Rules where required.

In terms of collaborative family matters, my most likely area of assistance would be the valuation of family assets. Often in cases where there is a family business, it is likely that the value of that matrimonial asset will not be clear and an independent joint valuation would assist with a collaborative solution.  I’m happy to discuss the requirements of any case and advise what I think is needed on a no obligation basis
