A FORENSIC ACCOUNTING SERVICE has been launched by Menzies as it seeks to strengthen its business recovery arm.
Menzies Forensic Services will specialise in forensic accounting and financial investigation assignments, involving both civil and criminal litigation and offer a full range of corporate investigation and intelligence services.
The team will be led by Gavin Cunningham and Philip de Nahlik. Cunningham is a qualified insolvency practitioner and spent 14 years as a principal investigator at the Serious Fraud Office, where he dealt with major fraud and international corruption cases.
De Nahlik joins from Begbies Traynor, where he was partner. He holds more than 30 years’ experience as a forensic accountant.
Simon Underwood, managing partner of Menzies Business Recovery, said: “The UK market for forensic accounting and intelligence services is growing rapidly as the economy continues to recover.
“Corporates and individuals will now have the time and resource to take stock of financial irregularities that have emerged. Bringing in the highly regarded and diverse talents of both Gavin and Philip will help us address the needs of this growing client base, and is a significant addition to Menzies’ range of services.”
