Mike Pilgrem is “a pleasure to deal with”, say peers who are quick to highlight his “strength in the witness box” as a notable part of his practice.
Mike Pilgrem is a senior managing director in FTI Consulting's economic and financial consulting practice and a chartered accountant. He joined FTI Consulting following its transaction with LECG, where he was a director in its financial advisory practice. Previously, Mike was a senior manager in Andersen's economic and financial consulting group and a director in the valuation group of Deloitte's corporate finance practice.
Over the last 31 years, Mike's responsibility has included audit, financial consulting and business valuation for a range of UK and international clients in different industries. His practice involves two main types of question: "questions of value" (including quantifying damages in claims in contract or tort) and "questions of accounting". Mike has advised on the value of companies, businesses and their IP or other intangible assets in a variety of contexts - for sale or purchase; for fiscal and transfer pricing purposes; for financial statement disclosure; in commercial and investment treaty arbitration; and in other disputes. He has 26 years of experience in providing advice in contentious contexts including shareholder actions, post-acquisition disputes, expert determinations, loss of profit claims, matrimonial matters and professional negligence claims.
Mike has been appointed as expert witness and prepared reports in matters before arbitral tribunals or English or other courts and given testimony as an expert witness before arbitral tribunals and the English High Court. During his career, including as project manager, he has been responsible in over 85 cases for one or more expert reports produced in disputes or for written submissions to, or determinations by, experts, including some of the largest commercial claims seen in the UK.
