Partner, PwC United Kingdom
I'm the UK Head of the Digital and Forensic Investigations practice, a 300+ person multi-disciplinary team made up of investigators, forensic accountants, forensic/legal technologists, intelligence and licensing and intellectual property / contract governance specialists.
I am a technologist by background and have spent my career in creating and using forensic, legal and artificial intelligence technology solutions to solve investigatory, compliance and legal issues.
In recent years I have also led or supported a broad range of UK and cross border investigations in both the public and private sectors including cases involving bribery and corruption, anti-trust / competition, fraud, financial mis-statement, data loss & cyber security breaches, employee misconduct, tax avoidance, regulatory compliance and 3rd party contract compliance. The majority of my cases involve coordination with regulators and law enforcement agencies including the SFO, FCA, FRC, CMA and the DoJ.
In addition to investigations, I also advise in house legal teams and law firms on the effective use of legal and artificial intelligence technology to automate or make legal processes more efficient resulting in cost savings.
