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

Paul Doxey is a senior consultant in the forensic services practice of Charles River Associates. 

Paul has 30 years’ experience in accountancy, finance, business and financial regulation. He specialises in forensic investigations and financial disputes, including testifying as an expert witness on accounting and fraud matters. Issues covered include accounting treatments, loss of profits, asset tracing, money laundering, fraud, corruption and financial crime due diligence. He has led large-scale investigations in the UK, continental Europe and Asia.

Paul was an audit and forensic partner at Arthur Andersen, where he worked for 14 years in the financial services practice. As a member the “on-call” technical team he advised investment banks on accounting for leasing, securities and structured products. He was seconded for two years as a senior manager in the special investigation units at the Bank of England and the Financial Services Authority.

Paul has deep experience in management systems and digital technology. He has founded a start-up to transform the ability of clients to organise and communicate their information simply, intuitively and securely. In 2014 he implemented the first information security management system to be fully certified under ISO 27001 for a UK forensic accounting firm or practice. He has also achieved certifications under ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 22301 (Business Continuity).

Paul is an accredited forensic accountant, a certified fraud examiner and a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. He has an MA in economics from the University of Cambridge and a diploma in business administration from Warwick Business School.

Clients have described Paul’s work as “excellent”, “first-rate”, “invaluable”, “exceptional”, “amazing” and “of the highest calibre at all times”. Qualities referred to include “commercial”, “dedicated”, “insightful” and “rigorous”. A leading silk on a high-profile case considered him “a vital asset in this complex fraud action”.

A recurring theme is the authority and clarity of his communications: sources describe his “assured presence when giving evidence in the witness box”, adding that he “is able to reduce a mass of sometimes confusing financial information to its essentials”, “coped exceptionally well with hostile cross-examination”, “is an excellent and poised witness” and “has an ability to explain and deconstruct complex matters clearly.”

Clients value Paul for his work in difficult or fast-changing circumstances, finding him “highly responsive”, able to “think critically” and demonstrating “a profound ability to analyse complex records”. They report that he can deal with “a great deal of material in a tight timeframe”, “turn around reports in very short spaces of time” and “respond to new developments on a case at short notice.”

A US litigator and ex-prosecutor with over 30 years’ experience, including very large international fraud cases, commented of Paul: “You were one of the very best with whom I have had the pleasure of working. Your perception, your diligence, your attention to detail (including inconvenient truth), your ability to see both the forest and each tree and to articulate clearly what you saw, place you in the first rank of exceedingly good forensic accountants. It was and is a pleasure to work with you, as I and my colleagues can attest.”

WWL says: Paul Doxey leaves clients “astonished by his excellent work, detailed document reviews, convincing reasoning and profound analysis”.
