Biography

Jonathan is a partner in EY’s Forensic & Integrity Services practice. He has provided insight to clients on forensic issues for 25 years and leads the UK anti-bribery and corruption team.

Jonathan’s experience is in investigations, compliance, evidence gathering and presentation, forensic data analysis, constructing compelling cases, giving evidence, leading diverse international teams and giving straightforward guidance to his clients through complex engagements.

Jonathan provides a focal point for unstructured and structured electronic investigations, forensic data analytics, and traditional investigative procedures, bringing together all the skills needed in a contemporary investigation. One of Jonathan’s particular areas of strength is in coordinating teams globally to conduct investigations at speed, with high quality, and using globally cost-efficient teams. He has also built a reputation for unravelling complex accounts manipulations, bringing clarity where there are ‘black hole’ issues.

Working closely with internal and external legal counsel, Jonathan has acted in many high-profile cases involving FTSE 50 businesses carrying out investigations that are responsive to the needs of the organisation’s stakeholders and financial markets.
