Managing Director

Disputes, Investigations & Valuations

Ben is a managing director in our national Forensic Accounting & Investigations team and advises both law firms and in-house legal teams on legal technology and advisory services. He also works closely with our clients and contacts to continue to develop our forensic accounting service, with a particular specialism in eDisclosure (eDiscovery).

Specialist expertise

As well as working with clients on a wide range of matters, Ben is also responsible for the ongoing development of our forensic accounting and investigations offering including leading our eDisclosure service. He works closely with clients to ensure we are matching the right services and solutions to the matter in hand, including legal technology and advisory services for litigation, regulatory and internal investigations, and on a wide variety of contentious matters. 

Ben has worked on a wide variety of matters, from small DSAR/employment matters, to cross border litigation involving millions of documents and incorporating newer analytical processes such as TAR (Technology Assisted Review/Machine Learning). Recent matters that Ben has advised on include; a fast-moving internal investigation involving multiple employees across multiple offices, requiring both concept and keyword searching to find relevant documentation, and a wide-ranging regulatory investigation involving the SFO that required multiple complex search criteria to surgically reduce the volume of documents requiring legal review. 

About Ben

Ben has spent a large proportion of his career specialising in the world of data, and for more than 12 years, specifically in forensic analysis and eDisclosure. At the beginning of his career in this area he was focused on business development, but over time this has developed into advising clients directly on data mapping, case data strategy, workflow design, review team management and much more. In previous firms Ben was responsible for setting up a new legal document review department at one of the Big Four consulting firms, and recently set up and ran the UK office of a successful US eDiscovery software company.

Outside of work Ben likes to run, practices Krav Maga, enjoys the odd DIY project and relaxes by home brewing and trying to emulate his brothers successful brewery.
