The “tremendously talented and quick” Richard Boulton QC is “an obvious pick as an expert witness” in arbitrations, according to interviewees, and ranks as one of the most prominent minds in the international market.
Richard Boulton is the chairman of Berkeley Research Group (UK) Ltd. He is a chartered accountant and barrister who advises clients on strategic, regulatory, economic, accounting and valuation issues. He has been engaged in over 250 litigations, including many of the UK’s largest commercial disputes, and has led major fraud investigations. He has given oral evidence on approximately 50 occasions in the English High Court, Copyright Tribunal, and European Commission (Competition Directorate) and before many international arbitration tribunals. He has also co-written a best-selling business book on strategy.
Mr Boulton was previously the global head of finance and accounting services of a major expert services and consulting firm, which included the forensic accounting, damages and intellectual property, financial services and health care practice areas.
Mr Boulton spent 20 years with Arthur Andersen – the last 11 years as a partner. He spent three years as the number-two executive, responsible for over 70,000 people worldwide. His broader experience included several global leadership positions; 15 years of client work as a consultant on financial and economic issues, particularly in the media and energy sectors; and substantial experience as an expert in major commercial litigation.
Mr Boulton has expertise in multiple jurisdictions. For four years, he spent half his time in the United States (principally Chicago and New York). He has led major client assignments in the United States (Seattle, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, New York, Minneapolis), Eastern Europe, the Bahamas, the Middle East, Libya, India and Japan.
