Requisition # LON00DOF

Post Date Aug 02, 2018

Assurance — Disputes, Senior, London

Our clients are looking to us to help them resolve complex commercial disputes and, ultimately safeguard the value of their businesses. Supporting our clients in their disputes is about providing robust independent views that bring together deep forensic accounting knowledge, sector insight and experience of dispute resolution forums. Our clients look to us to make it happen, and as a Disputes Senior, you’ll be right at the heart of that goal. It’s a role with far-reaching implications, so you’ll be working with stakeholders across industries with some of the most innovative technology tools available.

The opportunity

Our Forensic Investigations and Disputes Services (FIDS) team is growing, and as a Disputes Senior you’ll play a key role in that growth.

We work with a diverse portfolio of clients across industries, and you can expect to take on a wide range of work including commercial disputes, transaction disputes, completion/earn out accounts, expert determinations and professional negligence claims-making this a great place to develop your skills and business knowledge.

Your key responsibilities

It’s no exaggeration to say you’ll never be doing the same task for too long. You’re likely to balance your time between directly liaising with our clients to understand their needs and actively analysing complex data. It’s all about using your technical skills to creatively assess and resolve our clients’ needs from the front lines. That means thinking differently, developing effective teams and speaking up with innovative ideas that challenge the status quo.

  • Valuation and finance concepts (e.g. cost of capital, risk adjusted discount rates)

  • Understanding, digesting, explaining, analysing company accounts and financial information

  • Modelling, testing, documenting financial scenarios and anticipating challenges

  • Analysing strengths/weaknesses of opposing cases, formulating alternative damage scenarios and advising on strategic implications

  • Preparation of expert witness reports including review, analysis and verification of evidence

  • Different dispute resolution mechanisms (eg trial, civil hearing, mediation, arbitration, regulatory/competition tribunals)

  • Competition disputes, intellectual property and brand integrity disputes, insurance claims, audit malpractice defence and product recall disputes

  • Liaising with clients, in-house counsel, external legal teams, witnesses, other experts and regulatory enforcers

  • Leading or contributing to business development / marketing initiatives

To qualify for the role you must have:

  • Strong academic record including a degree (in any subject)

  • Professional accountancy qualification or similar professional qualification

  • Skills in Excel, Word, PowerPoint

  • Strong English language report writing skills

What we look for

We’re interested in leaders with a genuine creative vision and the confidence to make it happen. You can expect plenty of autonomy in this role, so you’ll also need the ability to take initiative and seek out opportunities to improve our current relationships and processes. If you’re serious about disputes and ready to take on some of our clients’ most complex issues, this role is for you.
