SPECIALIZING IN FINANCIAL LITIGATION SUPPORT

SUMMARY: Associate Member of the Institute of Public Accountants and Institute of Financial Accountants.

Technical skills developed in Audit and Business Services at “Big Eight Chartered” firms in the mid 80’s (Coopers & Lybrand and Touché Ross).

Forensic and investigative assignments commenced around 2004 providing litigation support on numerous legal matters within family law, proceeds of crime, money laundering, fraud and theft, commercial disputes between owners, supplier disputes and insurance fidelity claims.

I have a reputation for strong documentation, report writing and scoping skills delivering logically compiled evidence based reports used as Expert Reports and for mediation purposes within the jurisdictions of the High Court of Australia, Victorian Supreme Court, County Court of Victoria and VCAT.

Prior to establishing a forensic focus,  I held lead financial roles (CFO and equivalent) within the SME market responsible for the total accounting function from small practice management consultancies ($1M turnover)  to nationally based and global entities ($300M turnover).
