Jeffrey will lead the division’s team of professionals as they expand Cunningham Lindsey’s Forensic Advisory Services Team into the U.S. Jeffrey will also work closely with Cunningham Lindsey’s Major and Complex Loss (MCL) team and other adjusters in the industry on catastrophe and major loss quantification.
Jeffrey brings more than 30 years of forensic accounting expertise to Cunningham Lindsey. He specializes in the analysis of insurance claims for business interruption, inventory loss, fixed asset damages, and other complex, multi-million dollar, international insurance claims across Latin America, Europe and Asia. Jeffrey holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration Public Accountancy from California State University and is a member of the California Society of Certified Public Accountants. He is also fluent in Spanish.
“Jeffrey is a very accomplished forensic professional. He brings a unique blend of financial expertise and forensic analytics to assist our clients with identifying and quantifying business interruption and financial losses across a diverse range of industries,” said David Repinski, President and Chief Client Officer of Cunningham Lindsey, Americas. “Launching FAS in the U.S. will leverage our existing capabilities and success from our international forensic advisory services to meet the critical needs of our clients’ increasingly complex and major losses in the U.S.”
FAS U.S. operations will build on our existing offices in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and the United Kingdom. In addition, Cornwell’s appointment will assist our London market clients who have an increasing need for on-the-ground forensic advisory services following loss events in the U.S. Our Forensic Advisory specialists across the world regularly partner with insurers, re-insurers and captives to assist in settling insurance claims. We provide forensic expertise to quantify business interruption and other financial impacts of complex losses. Our experts are also engaged by the legal profession to assist in a wide range of contentious matters and disputes.
“I am excited to have a vital role expanding the Forensic Advisory Services Team within the U.S.” said Cornwell. “The financial elements of losses are often the largest and more difficult component of an insurance claim to analyze. Our growing team of U.S. forensic professionals will work closely with our clients, brokers and policy holders and their advisors to uncover the financial evidence to quantify the full financial impact of any loss.”
