A PARTNER AND DIRECTOR have been brought into BDO’s forensic accounting team.
Gavin Williamson and Cathie Cameron have taken the roles respectively in the London-based function, with Williamson joining from Deloitte, while Cameron ran her own consulting business in the US.
Williamson has experience of the preparation of independent investigation reports for the UK’s Serious Fraud Office, the US Department of Justice, English county courts and the High Court.
Cameron has 25 years’ experience in providing expert witness services in damages calculation, forensic accounting and business valuation. Previously, she had provided those services at Berkeley Research Group and LECG.
Gervase MacGregor, head of international advisory, risk and quality at BDO, said: “Gavin and Cathie’s combined global experiences will greatly strengthen our offering and add a depth of knowledge to our global proposition. Gavin’s experience with forensic methodologies and asset tracing and Cathie’s knowledge of dispute resolution and expert witness cases will further bolster our in-house skill set. I look forward to working with them.”
