Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Expert Witnesses

Luke Steadman is a partner in Alvarez & Marsal’s disputes and investigations practice, specialising in expert accounting evidence for international arbitration. He has over 20 years of professional accounting experience as a forensic accountant focusing on dispute resolution, expert testimony, investigations and disputes across Europe, Asia and the United States.

His experience of international arbitration covers ICC, LCIA, UNCITRAL and ICDR rules as well as ad hoc and specialist centres such as London Maritime, Dubai and Singapore. He has acted as both party-appointed and tribunal-appointed expert on over 30 matters over the past five years and has provided both solo and concurrent oral evidence in hearings in London, Warsaw and Dubai. Written and oral evidence has included considerations of quantum, valuation, and the accounting treatment of complex transactions under international, US and UK Accounting Standards and Principles.

As an expert in accounting and valuation, Mr Steadman also provides expert evidence in domestic courts and has appeared in the High Court on many occasions. He continues to receive instruction in High Court matters and has also appeared as an expert on accounting concepts and principles in the First-tier Tax Tribunal.

With over 20 years of experience Mr Steadman is also known for leading complex many-handed accounting investigations and asset recovery matters. He has led accounting investigations on both sides of the Atlantic, and in the US he has considerable experience in dealing with US regulators and prosecutors following investigations of fraud and accounting irregularities at major US companies. In Asia, Mr Steadman acted as an expert in a high-profile failed investment scheme, while in the UK he has carried out a number of wide-ranging investigations of accounting irregularities on behalf of UK companies, insurers and investors.

In the public sector, Mr Steadman saw regular appointments by the secretary of state for trade and industry as an inspector in matters of insider dealing and in the conduct of statutory company investigations under UK legislation, as well as providing assistance on accounting, fraud and other issues to major regulators.

Prior to joining Alvarez & Marsal, Mr Steadman was the head of the fraud and forensic accounting investigations team at a global consulting firm.

WWL says: Luke Steadman is particularly well known for his forensic accounting expertise, providing evidence for international arbitration. He impresses clients with his “hard-working ethos”.
