Profile

Hugh Simons (Director)

I am an expert witness and investigator with over 20 years' experience covering commercial disputes, civil and criminal fraud and regulatory investigations and inquiries. I have acted in arbitrations and mediations as well as litigated disputes and have given evidence at both civil and criminal trials.  I have also acted as an expert determiner as well as for parties in expert determinations.

With experience in all aspect of forensic accountancy work, I have acted in domestic and international claims ranging from the hundreds of thousands of pounds to some in excess of $1billion.  Complex financial instruments and accounting issues have featured prominently in some of these cases.

I am a strong team player and enjoy the challenge of identifying the right team, leading it and, working collaboratively with clients, so as to deliver high quality outputs expeditiously.

I am also a Trustee of a defined benefit pension scheme and a keen wine amateur.
