Who's Who Legal Asset Recovery: Experts

Andrew has specialised in all aspects of forensic accounting since 1996. He has worked on investigations, asset tracing and a large variety of international commercial and investment arbitration disputes, all with an international element – including breach of contract, breach of warranty, loss of profits, sale and purchase disputes, expert determinations, valuations, contentious insolvency, fraud and corruption investigations and UK Bribery Act advice. He has testified before the English High Court, a criminal court, ICC, LCIA and ICSID tribunals and by way of deposition.

Andrew has an MA in economics from the University of Cambridge and is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. He is a certified fraud examiner, an accountant expert witness accredited by the Academy of Experts and a forensic accountant accredited by the ICAEW. He is also an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.

He is an officer of the IBA subcommittee on asset tracing, and represents BDO at the OECD working group on bribery. He has lectured on fraud investigation, asset tracing, the quantification of damages in bribery cases and international arbitration to audiences around the world, including Commonwealth Secretariat conferences in Nigeria and India. He has authored chapters in Banking on Corruption and GAR Guide to Damages in International Arbitration.

He has worked in many jurisdictions, particularly France, Switzerland, Western and Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Between 1991 and 1994 he worked in Burundi, Africa, and is fluent in French. Sectors in which he has worked include aviation, telecoms, electricity generation, oil and gas, renewables, extractive industries, manufacturing, retail, construction and infrastructure.

Major investigations he has worked on include worldwide litigation arising out of the collapse of Swissair, an investigation into accounting and corporate governance issues and alleged corruption in a company in Kenya, a global asset-tracing case for a Saudi businessman, contentious litigation following the collapse of the Versailles Group and asset recovery in relation to General Abacha in Nigeria. He was also appointed special representative in the UK of an Italian magistrate in relation to a Milan corruption investigation. He has advised more than 50 organisations on aspects of the UK Bribery Act, particularly the adequate procedures defence.

WWL says: Andrew Maclay is well known among peers and clients alike as “a very clever practitioner” who they consider “a sophisticated operator” when it comes to forensic accounting and asset-tracing matters.
