Armstrong Watson’s forensic accounting team reports successful growth

27th June 2017

MSI's Northern UK accounting member Armstrong Watson is delighted to announce that since establishing its forensic accounting service in October 2016, it is close to doubling in size after experiencing high growth in demand for its specialist services.

Matthew Geale joined Armstrong Watson’s team last October as Partner and Head of Forensic Accounting. Matthew was joined by Liesel Annible as Director of Forensic Accounting and Liam Whittleston as Assistant Manager. Since then Claire Prideaux joined as Forensic Manager and now high profile industry heavyweight Chris Hine joins as Forensic Consultant, meaning Armstrong Watson’s highly specialised team boasts nearly 100 years’ worth of experience in this specialised field of accounting.

Between them, they have worked on a number of high profile and reported cases on the full range of forensic accounting services including commercial litigation, personal injury claims, criminal investigations, civil investigations, intellectual property, dispute resolution and professional negligence.

Matthew Geale comments: “I’m delighted to be reporting such rapid growth of the service and consequently the team. The past six months have seen us go from strength to strength providing our services throughout the UK, including some high profile and reported cases. We’ve been working hard to utilise our knowledge and experience to bring original thinking to, and achieve innovative solutions for our clients.

Our clients can benefit from unrivalled experience and knowledge when they come to Armstrong Watson. We are a centre of excellence when it comes to these services and with the addition of Chris Hine earlier this month we are going from strength to strength.”
