Alvarez & Marsal, the global professional services firm that specialises in business advisory services, has bolstered its Hong Kong and China operations with the appointment of a forensic and dispute services head.
Managing director Keith Williamson is relocating from London to Hong Kong to become the head of the firm's global forensic and dispute team in Hong Kong and China, bringing with him some 18 years of industry experience. He specialises in investigations into fraud, corruption and regulatory issues, including asset tracing and recovery, and litigation support and expert witness services.
Williamson joined A&M in 2011 in London and most recently advised a non-government organisation with investigations of alleged misappropriations of grand funds in Asia and Africa. Prior to that, he spent 10 years with Deloitte's forensic and dispute services team, including three years working in Asia from the Hong Kong office.
Alvarez & Marsal has been actively growing its Asian franchise in the past year, with efforts including the appointment of retail and revenue enhancement expert Jacques Roizen for Hong Kong and expanding its Beijing performance improvement team with the hires of Yansong Xue and Bing Liu as directors.
