Carla Matthews

Head of Contentious Insolvency & Asset Recovery, PwC United Kingdom

Carla is a contentious insolvency and asset recovery expert with over 20 years’ experience investigating, litigating, and recovering assets on behalf of clients. She acts on behalf of various stakeholders to implement litigation focused recovery strategies both domestically and globally in complex cross border, multi jurisdictional high stakes disputes where assets are at risk of dissipation, require repatriation or equitable monetisation.

Carla leads a highly experienced team with an outstanding track record of successfully tracing and pursuing the recovery of assets in solvent and insolvent situations, where there has been suspected fraud, financial impropriety or a breach of statutory provisions, and there is a requirement to implement asset tracing and recovery measures.

The divestment of assets to offshore locations from both companies and other victims is becoming more prevalent and Carla frequently coordinates claims in multiple jurisdictions, providing a global solution to a global problem. She has recovered assets and/or litigated in the UK, Europe, USA, Channel Islands, CIS, Lichtenstein, Dubai, Hong Kong and the Caribbean.

“I am committed to assisting those who require help tracing and recovering assets. PwC's global presence allows us to leave no stone unturned in the pursuit and recovery of assets.”

Carla works with a wide variety of stakeholders, including the victims of corporate fraud, creditor activist groups, government departments and regulatory bodies, who approach her for advice and assistance where there is a need for a clinically considered, strategic approach to maximise recoveries and minimise risk.

Carla works collaboratively across the Restructuring & Forensics service line, ensuring each client and case has a tailored approach with specialist input to implement the most effective and commercial recovery strategy.
