GRANT THORNTON has appointed a new partners to its Forensic Investigations Services team.
Nick Andrews joins Grant Thornton from KPMG, where he led the Big Four firm's dispute advisory practice for ten years.
Andrews' main areas of specialism are the quantification of loss claims in breach of contract or business interruption situations, advising on post-acquisition transaction-related disputes, and business valuation in contentious situations, including in matrimonial disputes, Grant Thornton said.
Scott Barnes, CEO of Grant Thornton UK, said: "The FIS team has grown from strength to strength over recent years, working on a number of landmark international cases, and Nick's appointment is certain to add to this momentum."
Andrews is a Fellow of the ICAEW and has been accredited as an expert witness and forensic accountant by them. He is also a member of the Expert Witness Institute.
Just publishing the Grant Thornton press release is not very interesting. What we want to know is what went wrong at KPMG?
