Who's Who Legal Investigations: Forensic Accountants

Colum applies 3 decades of financial, commercial and forensic accounting experience assisting clients to better protect against, respond to, and recover from challenging situations that have regulatory, reputational, or financial implications such as fraud, corruption, data breach, money laundering and sanctions, and complex commercial disputes. Based in Asia for 25 years and a former partner at a global accounting firm, he managed a group of China-focused companies before playing a key role in establishing and developing Kroll's financial investigations practice in Asia.

Colum has led over 100 fraud investigations in China, as well as FCPA, OFAC and other regulatory investigations and compliance reviews across APAC, in addition to sizeable investigations in the Middle East, Eastern Europe and South America. His professional experience includes: audit, risk and compliance; IPO’s; due diligence reviews and business valuations with many engagements involving multi-jurisdictional and complicated organisational and/or operational issues, across a broad spectrum of industries; and he is frequently retained as an accounting expert in relation to Hong Kong and international court, regulatory and arbitration proceedings.

WWL says: Colum Bancroft is “thorough, experienced and calm under pressure” according to clients who hold him in high regard. They note that “his wealth of experience is unparalleled”.
