Trevor Wiles is a partner in FRA’s London Office in the Forensic Accounting team. He has over 27 years’ experience of providing forensic services, in particular leading investigations into allegations of serious fraud and misconduct, regulatory issues, and the root causes of compliance failures.
In recent years Trevor has investigated allegations of bribery and corruption, accounting misstatement, embezzlement, procurement fraud, sanction breaches, channel stuffing, and asset misappropriation for organizations in a variety of industry sectors, including energy and natural resources, financial services, telecoms, pharmaceuticals, and manufacturing. His experience covers investigations undertaken throughout Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia.
Trevor was part of the FRA team supporting Airbus in a multi-year forensic accounting and eDiscovery review within the context of the company’s multinational investigation, reporting to four investigative authorities: UK Serious Fraud Office (SFO), the US Department of Justice (DOJ), the US Department of State (DOS) and French Parquet National Financier (PNF). Trevor’s team focused on a risk assessment and evaluation of the company’s anti-bribery and corruption (ABC) global compliance program.
Trevor works collaboratively with clients and their legal advisors to bring a multi-disciplinary approach to investigating complex, and often multi-jurisdictional, matters, including the use of forensic technology and data analytics to help identify crucial evidence faster and more effectively.
Trevor also advises clients on the implementation of robust compliance programs, including ABC and anti-fraud programs. This includes helping clients to undertake fraud and compliance risk assessments, and to introduce proportionate controls to mitigate identified risks. Trevor also assists clients to determine the effectiveness of their existing compliance programs, and provides fraud and misconduct awareness training to client staff at all levels.
Prior to joining FRA, Trevor spent 20 years in the Forensic team at KPMG. Trevor is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.
