Thirteen new partners have been appointed internationally to join the PwC team in Hong Kong, Germany, South Africa, Australia, US and Czech Republic.

Among those promoted are Mark Hunter, an anti-money laundering specialist, and intellectual property expert Melanie Butler.

‘The forensic services market will be impacted by the forthcoming introduction of further anti-money laundering regulations, the UK corruption bill and wider corporate governance pressures,’ said Chris Lemar, UK leader of PwC forensic services.
