Experience & specialist field
I first undertook forensic accountancy work in around 1984. I take instructions from several firms of solicitors and insurers. I take instructions on both claimant and defence work.
I am a member of the Academy of Experts and have undertaken training and completed reports as a Single Joint Expert.
Rushtons is also a member firm of the UK200 Group and I am a member of the Specialist Litigation Support panel. This panel organises various specialist training courses and ensures its members remain up to date with current issues and legal reporting requirements.
I have extensive experience in preparing loss of earnings calculations for personal injury claims, usually as a result of road traffic accidents. I have also experience of partnership disputes, valuations for matrimonial and shareholder disputes, professional negligence claims and loss of profit calculations.
Professional memberships and Qualifications

I joined Rushtons Chartered Accountants in 1976 as a trainee accountant. I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1980, and in 1982 I was made an equity Partner in the firm. I then became the Senior Partner in 2001. During this time I have gained extensive experience across a wide range of accounting services including audit, accounts, tax, payroll, and business start up services.
This breadth of experience in my career has stood me in good stead when examining some of the diverse forensic accounting cases presented to me.
In 2016, following a merger with another firm I have co-founded Rushtons Forensic Accounting team. This is a natural bi-product of the merger, with two experienced and approved Experts in myself and Michael Muschamp now able to call upon a large, multi-disciplinary team.
