Neill has over 30 years’ professional experience, having trained as a chartered accountant on the audit team of a Big Four accountancy practice in the UK and, soon after qualifying in 1988, specialised in forensic accounting and litigation support work. He has worked in Asia for over 14 years and has accumulated extensive regional experience in dispute services, forensic accounting and financial investigations.
Neill has been involved in a number of complex and high-profile dispute cases in the Asia region and elsewhere and has given expert accounting witness evidence on a number of occasions in tribunals in Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and the United Kingdom.
He is regularly called upon to advise and opine on claims for losses arising out of shareholder, joint venture, private equity, mergers and acquisitions, family, contractual and tort disputes involving a range of industries. Neill is typically required to assess loss of profit claims and business valuations and advise on the technical accounting issues arising in disputes. Much of his work is carried out in the context of international arbitrations seated in Asia and elsewhere.
Neill has a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) degree in economics. He is an associate of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, a fellow of the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants, a member of the Academy of Experts, a member of the Expert Witness Institute, a certified fraud examiner and an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
