Grant Thornton poaches Andrews from KPMG

Grant Thornton has appointed Nick Andrews as a partner in its Forensic Investigations Services (FIS) team

Andrews has over 30 years' experience in accounting, investigations and forensic work, and joins from KPMG’s UK dispute advisory practice, which he has lead for the last 10 years.

Andrews specialises in the quantification of loss claims in breach of contract or business interruption, advising on post-acquisition transaction-related disputes and business valuation in contentious situations, including in matrimonial disputes.

Scott Barnes, chief executive of Grant Thornton, said, "Nick is a fantastic hire for our firm, his considerable experience and expertise will complement our already world-class offering in the area of forensics. The FIS team has grown from strength to strength over recent years, working on a number of landmark international cases, and Nick's appointment is certain to add to this momentum."

Nick said: "I'm excited to be joining Grant Thornton at a transformational time for the business. It's setting itself apart from its competitors with a genuinely client-focused approach to working relationships, and within the FIS team there are some exciting opportunities. I very much look forward to working with its team of industry leaders."
