Leading business and financial adviser Grant Thornton UK LLP has appointed Michael Radcliffe to lead its disputes advisory practice.

Radcliffe is a forensics partner based in London. Over the last 20 years Radcliffe has advised clients on many complex cross-border disputes specialising in commercial litigation, civil fraud, arbitration and transaction disputes. He has experience working across a variety of sectors including extractive industries and financial services.

“I am truly excited to be taking over the reins of a fantastic and well-established team,” said Radcliffe. “With ongoing economic and political uncertainty, our clients are frequently encountering challenges which need the local-market insight and multi-disciplinary expertise that Grant Thornton offers.”

As head of disputes advisory, Radcliffe will be focusing on growing the existing business and expanding into new service areas to meet the firm’s ambitious growth targets. Grant Thornton’s forensics practice has seen its fifth consecutive year of growth, following new partner investments in both its disputes advisory and cyber consulting offerings.

Will Davies, head of forensics at Grant Thornton UK LLP, said: “Our market leading disputes advisory practice brings together a talented group of partners who advise and act as experts across the full spectrum of disputes that we see in the market – including Philippa Hill, who leads on accounting irregularity and transaction disputes, and Chris West, who leads on complex contentious valuations. I look forward to working with Michael as he continues to drive this dynamic practice forward with a fresh outlook.”
