Markiewicz joins the firm’s forensic accounting and investigations team after a decade at Deloitte where he recently led forensic dispute services in Central Europe, having previously worked in Paris focusing on international arbitration. Markiewicz has supported clients in an advisory or expert capacity on a range of litigation, arbitration (both commercial and investment) and expert determination matters including damage computation, investment valuation, and accounting analysis across Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. He is a qualified accountant, fraud examiner, investment analyst and risk manager.
Markiewicz, located in Poland, will be responsible for establishing a forensic accounting presence for the firm in Continental Europe, as well as strengthening Quantuma’s international arbitration practice in the UK and globally. He will work alongside the forensic accounting and investigations team in London, as well as its rapidly expanding international service capability. Over the last six months Quantuma has increased its international offering, adding to its offices in Mauritius and Cyprus by establishing a location in the Cayman Islands.
The appointment of Markiewicz is the latest move as part of Quantuma’s continued investment in its forensic accounting and investigations capability – more than tripling the size of the team over the past three years. He joins recent hires including managing directors David Bell and Kate Hart based in the UK, and Ben Hammerton who leads the firm’s international eDiscovery and AI-enhanced investigations offering.
Adam Markiewicz said: “Quantuma is rapidly strengthening its footprint in the forensic accounting and investigations space having made significant investment in its team since it launched in 2018. I am delighted to be joining at such an exciting time in its growth journey as the firm expands its practice in the UK and in key locations around the globe. I’m keen to continue serving clients and their counsel with truly conflict-free expertise, a globally-integrated team, and very flexible solutions under Quantuma’s brand.”
Gavin Pearson, managing director, and head of its UK forensic accounting and investigations team added: “We’re delighted Adam has joined the team and will be supporting the development of our capability both here in the UK and across much of Europe. Adam boasts extensive disputes experience, particularly in international arbitration and contentious valuation, meaning he will bring an invaluable wealth of expertise with him. This, together with other recent hires, helps to establish us as one of the leading firms for forensic accounting expertise.”
