Leading Contentious Insolvency Expert Joins Begbies Traynor Group

Kevin Mawer has joined BTG Global Risk Partners, part of Begbies Traynor Group, as Partner and Head of its Forensic Insolvency Investigations division.

Kevin was a director with KPMG since 2007, during which time he set up and led its forensic recovery team. He also spent nine years as a partner with Grant Thornton and 14 years with Arthur Andersen where he qualified as a chartered accountant and became a Partner. Kevin is a forensic recovery expert with almost 30 years’ experience in contentious insolvency. A qualified insolvency practitioner, he specialises in insolvency cases where fraud or misfeasance are suspected.

Working alongside Richard Pughe, National Head of Forensic Accounting, Kevin will complement the expertise of BTG Global Risk Partners by expanding its expertise in cases of contentious insolvency.

“Begbies Traynor Group is renowned for providing a one-stop shop of specialist services for businesses. The addition of Kevin will strengthen our forensic recovery team, enabling us to effectively deal with the increasing number of insolvency cases involving suspicions of fraud brought to us by clients,” explains John Reynard, Executive Chairman of BTG Global Risk Partners.

“As one of the leading experts on contentious insolvency in the UK, Kevin will play a key role in helping to investigate cases of suspected fraud and to recover funds for creditors.”

Kevin comments:“Over the last 30 years, I have handled many complex and high-profile insolvency cases. I am looking forward to using my knowledge and experience to help BTG Global Risk Partners to build on its services in this niche area in order to offer a more comprehensive service to clients.”

Kevin was previously a member of the ICAEW’s Insolvency Licensing Committee and is currently a member of its Disciplinary Panel.
