He is highly skilled in the project management of e-discovery engagements through all aspects of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM).
Prior to joining FTI Consulting, Chris was an Associate Partner at a “Big Four” in Hong Kong after transferring at their request from the UK after having conceived and overseen the build out of a forensic lab in Manchester and “follow the sun” support from his team in Hyderabad, India.
