Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Expert Witnesses

Nicolas Barsalou is a founding partner of Accuracy. Before that, he was a partner at Ernst & Young (ex-Arthur Andersen), a firm he joined in 1998 after several years in two corporations, in which he acquired a broad range of financial and accounting skills.

With more than 25 years’ experience in corporate finance, he specialises in complex litigation and arbitration cases conducted in an international environment. He has significant experience in construction, telecoms and high-tech, transport, retail, manufacturing and professional services. He also leads Accuracy’s global real estate practice.

He has been appointed many times as an expert witness in High Court litigations and international arbitrations (ICC, ICSID, SIAC, ad hoc arbitration), dealing with the investigation and quantification of damages resulting from commercial, construction, post-M&A and accounting disputes. He has given oral evidence on 12 occasions, both in English and in French, for cases in the real estate, oil and gas, chemicals, retail, utilities and manufacturing industries.

Nicolas Barsalou is Accuracy’s expert dedicated to complex accounting issues. He also performs transaction advisory services and valuations on a regular basis, mostly for large listed international corporations. With a truly international profile, he monitors a major part of Accuracy’s geographical expansion and has successfully led engagements on all continents. He graduated from HEC Paris in 1989 and holds a master’s degree in accounting (DESCF).

WWL says: Nicolas Barsalou is described by commentators as “one of the best financial experts due to his precise analysis and cross-examination skills”.
