‘I love the challenges of explaining complex issues clearly in a report or a witness box, and the cut and thrust of questioning. But the analysis behind an expert report is a team effort, and KordaMentha’s forensic team, in my long experience, is second to none.’

Mark is a forensic accounting expert with 35 years’ experience in public accounting.


He was a partner in Arthur Andersen from 1987 until 2002; and a partner and member of the Board of partners of Ernst & Young Australia from 2002 to 2006. He was then a consultant to Ernst & Young until he joined KordaMentha in 2013.


Mark has had experience in audits and other forms of financial investigation. This included seven years as engagement and signing partner responsible for the worldwide audit of The News Corporation Limited.


Since the 1980s Mark has also prepared reports for litigation and other forms of dispute. He has frequently given evidence as an expert witness on accounting and valuation issues, in Courts and other tribunals in Australia and New Zealand.


Mark regularly performs work relating to independent determinations required by share purchase contracts: either as the independent expert, or as an advisor to one party.
