TWO NEW PARTNERS have been appointed in forensic accounting and technology services at FRP Advisory.

Christopher Osborne has been appointed as head of forensic accounting and investigation services, joining from Alvarez & Marsal, while Mark Iwaszko has been promoted to partner as head of forensic technology services.

Geoff Carton-Kelly, partner and head of FRP Advisory’s London office, said: “The welcome arrival of Christopher and the promotion of Mark to the partnership are part of the firm’s continued drive to create and recover value both nationally and internationally. Under the leadership of Christopher and Mark, we have an even deeper wealth of proven in-house expertise to offer to our clients.”

Osborne and Iwaszko are based in FRP Advisory’s London office and are engaged in complex disputes and investigation projects involving forensic accounting and the recovery and analysis of data across platforms and jurisdictions. Current FRP Advisory appointments include acting as concurrent administrators to BHS Limited.

FRP Advisory currently has 35 partners and operates from 12 offices across England and Scotland.

It has also invested in the Relativity e-disclosure and analytics platform to support the firm’s litigation and investigation matters.

Carton-Kelly added: “Our investment in the best people goes hand-in-hand with our investment in the Relativity e-disclosure and analytics platform, allowing the partnership to harness the latest techniques in artificial intelligence.”

Christopher Osborne joined FRP Advisory as partner after eight years with Alvarez & Marsal, where he was a senior director, and brings seventeen years of experience in financial investigations, disputes, compliance and risk assignments.

Mark Iwaszko’s promotion to partner follows six years at FRP Advisory, where as Head of Forensic Technology Services, he has grown and expanded the firm’s forensic technology service offering since the firm’s inception.  Mark brings 28 years of experience in digital forensics, data capture, analysis and electronic disclosure and he is a certified forensic investigation practitioner.
