In recent years, he has led more than eight investigations on behalf of accountancy regulators into major accounting scandals. He is currently leading a team assisting the Attorney General’s office of a southern European country investigating potential crimes in the banking sector.

Mr Johnson has substantial experience of FCPA and UK Bribery Act investigations and has led anti-bribery and corruption-specific due diligence assignments on behalf of private equity clients in the context of high-risk transactions. He also has significant fund-tracing experience, having acted in several multi-jurisdictional matters involving US and European regulators and the tracing of billions of dollars in proprietary funds.

Mr Johnson has experience across a range of industry sectors and has assisted clients on the ground in countries around the world, including Australia, Botswana, China, Cyprus, Gibraltar, Hong Kong, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Republic of Ireland, Switzerland and the United States.
