Paul Doxey

Senior Consultant to CRA

Paul Doxey is a Senior Consultant in the Forensic Services practice of Charles River Associates and a technology entrepreneur.

Paul has over 30 years’ experience in accountancy, finance, business and financial regulation. He specializes in forensic investigations and financial disputes, including testifying as an expert witness on accounting and fraud matters. Practice areas include accounting and reporting (IFRS and UK GAAP), damages/loss of profits, asset tracing, fraud, false accounting, money laundering and corruption. He has led large-scale investigations in the UK, continental Europe and Asia.

Paul was an audit, accounting and forensic partner at Arthur Andersen, where he worked for 14 years in the financial services practice. As a member of the ‘on-call’ technical team he advised investment banks on accounting and reporting for leasing, securities and structured products. He was seconded for two years as a senior manager in the special investigation units at the Bank of England and at the Financial Services Authority.

Paul has deep experience in digital technology, innovation and management systems. His technology startup provides valuable insights by automating the processing and analysis of large and disparate data sets across an entire enterprise or project area. This saves significant time, cost and effort. It frees analysts from difficult and mundane tasks that computers can perform much more effectively and reliably.

For 10 years Paul has designed and run the management systems for two of his private businesses, which are certified under ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 22301 (Business Continuity) and ISO 27001 (Information Security). In 2014 his firm Dagger Forensics LLP became the first accounting practice to be fully certified under ISO 27001.

Paul receives praise from leading solicitors and barristers for his strategic advice on complex cases, and for his written reports and oral testimony. He is described as ‘a first-rate forensic accountant’, ‘an excellent and poised witness’ and ‘in the first rank of exceedingly good forensic accountants’. Who’s Who Legal regularly highlights Paul as a thought leader and global leader in forensic accounting. Its surveys report that he is regarded as ‘a fantastic expert’, a ‘go to name for fraud and money laundering investigations’ and that he ‘leaves clients “astonished by his excellent work, detailed document reviews, convincing reasoning and profound analysis” ’.

Paul is an Accredited Forensic Accountant, Certified Fraud Examiner and Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. He has an MA in Economics from the University of Cambridge and a diploma in Business Administration from Warwick Business School.
