Mathew Richardson to join corporate finance practice
September 06, 2016: Global business advisory firm FTI Consulting is pleased to announce the appointment of Matthew Richardson as a managing director in its corporate finance practice in London.
Richardson will be relocating from the British Virgin Islands (BVI) where he has spent eight years, the last three of which leading FTI’s corporate finance & restructuring team, specialising in contentious insolvency and global asset recovery engagements.
Richardson has extensive experience in corporate recovery services, primarily in contentious cross-border insolvency involving international litigation, fraud investigation, asset tracing and realisation of complex and illiquid assets. He has undertaken work in a variety of industries, including financial services, offshore banking, real estate, shipping, financial institutions, mining, oil & gas and telecommunications. He has also accepted appointments as receiver of BVI holding companies with substantial underlying operating entities around the world in the context of high value shareholder disputes.
Most of his work is international in nature. Accordingly, he has significant experience in many jurisdictions, including the U.S., the UK, Russia, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Hong Kong, Singapore, Panama and Switzerland. Mr. Richardson was recognised as an asset recovery expert by Who’s Who Legal: Asset Recovery 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Prior to joining FTI Consulting, Mr. Richardson was a Senior Manager at an independent provider of restructuring, financial and corporate advisory solutions in the BVI. He began his career with a Big Four firm in the UK in 2000.
Kevin Hewitt, Co-Chairman of FTI Consulting EMEA, said, “We are delighted to welcome Matthew back to the UK. He is a hugely experienced insolvency practitioner who will add significant expertise to our existing capabilities. Contentious insolvency and asset recovery forms an increasingly important part of our service to clients, and Matthew’s arrival reinforces our strong position in the European marketplace.”
