James has worked extensively for clients across a number of sectors and has particular expertise in Not for Profit, Financial Services and Professional Practices.  He is a Director and Treasurer of the London Fraud Forum, a not for profit public-private partnership focussed on the prevention and investigation of fraud.
 
Prior to joining PKF Littlejohn, James was a partner in a leading international accounting firm and was instrumental in establishing its fraud insolvency division.
