Who's Who Legal Consulting Experts: Experts - Investigations - Forensic Accountants

Ian Thompson is a senior managing director in the London office of FTI Consulting. Ian has worked on forensic engagements for 15 years, and is generally instructed amidst allegations of financial irregularity and/or circumstances of financial distress.

Ian has given oral evidence on five occasions: three in the High Court in London and two in the Commercial Court in the British Virgin Islands (BVI). He has been cross-examined by top-ranked QCs.

Ian was recently instructed as expert on a case involving allegations of fraud in relation to a number of construction projects. He was described by the judge as both providing “invaluable assistance” and as an expert “in which the Court can have confidence." The judge also wrote “Mr Thompson, in particular, provided a detailed analysis of the relevant money flows in certain appendices which…were relied upon extensively by both sides at trial.”

Ian was instructed as expert on a case involving complex cash-tracing in respect of over 50 bank accounts, in order to establish how funds had been applied. He was described by the judge as having given “extraordinarily careful attention to the matter.” Both the judge and opposing counsel essentially accepted a key part of his evidence.

Ian assisted the BVI and Bermudian governments with a complex, multi-jurisdictional investigation in relation to allegations of money laundering and corruption. He investigated the activities of numerous Bermudian entities, including the source and application of their funds. This led to their liquidation and the confiscation of just over $45 million.

Ian was seconded to the former Department of Trade and Industry in the UK, where he undertook numerous company investigations. Twelve companies were wound up in the public interest and two directors disqualified. In relation to one such case, Ian was described by the judge as “in all respects a careful, reliable and truthful witness.”

Ian is an FCA and an associate member of the Academy of Experts.

WWL says: Ian Thompson stands out as “a sound, personable expert with excellent judgement”. He has a strong fraud practice and is regularly engaged in high-value financial investigations.
