Mark Jenner is an experienced leader of teams investigating corporate fraud and white collar crime within the UK and further afield. However, he likes nothing better than to roll his sleeves up and get involved in the nuts and bolts of any fraud investigation case where he is instructed. His forensic accounting business Mark Jenner & Co was established in 2010 to continue the same services he previously provided through the leadership of forensic departments in leading accountancy firms including Grant Thornton and Baker Tilly where he specialised in fraud and crime related cases. He is able to provide the highest quality expert forensic accounting services without the burden of city centre costs and therefore is able to service both publicly and privately funded assignments with fully expert led work at a time when funding constraints are becoming increasingly difficult to bear.
Mark has over 16 years experience in forensic accounting, including investigating and reporting in cases of false accounting, trading while insolvent, money laundering, employee theft, transfer of business to “phoenix” companies, provision of expert accounting assistance in criminal fraud and prosecuting/defending counter claims in civil fraud and commercial litigation.
Mark provides high quality independent expert forensic accounting services to criminal defence lawyers throughout the UK. He will provide a no obligation rapid turnaround initial report when reviewing case papers for any fraud or proceeds of crime matter and respond with a letter that can be used to advise counsel, obtain funding for expert forensic accounting services from the Legal Services Commission or sometimes simply inform the defence team of financial and business issues that may be important.
He is an asset tracing and recovery specialist in cases of insolvency and general fraud. Mark provides regular accounting, investigation and expert witness advice to regulatory and prosecuting bodies including police fraud squads, the Serious Fraud Office, Companies Investigation Branch, Association of British Insurers etc.
Mark has a Master’s degree in Fraud Investigation Management (MA) having completed several years of specialist fraud research covering such areas as detection and control of corporate fraud and establishing the positive benefits of using forensic accounting investigation specialists in major fraud trials. Mark qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Ernst & Young in 1992, following a number of years in general management in the UK and Europe and is now a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (FCA).
Mark is a Member of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) holding its full membership accreditation (CFE). He regularly works throughout the UK and further afield when an investigation may span several jurisdictions. Mark is also accredited by the Expert Witness Institute MEWI.
The central location of York has proven to be an ideal place for a forensic accountancy business with access to most parts of the country being within a short drive or train journey away. Most work undertaken comes out of the financial centres in London, Birmingham and Manchester – along with instructions received from solicitors based in Hull, Ipswich, Exeter, Brighton etc. The combination of good communication links and preparedness to accept many jobs on a “local firm basis” has meant that Mark Jenner & Co has become a national resource for criminal defence solicitors who require high quality forensic accounting services.
