David leads the Forensic Data Analytics team in our Disputes and Investigations practice in London. He has over 19 years of experience working with clients on their most complex and high-profile matters, primarily in the financial services space. David’s specialism is in the forensic extraction, interpretation and analysis of complex and disparate structured data sets (e.g., databases), specifically in the context of legal disputes and regulatory investigations.
David frequently works alongside our economic consulting and forensic accounting experts, providing expert analysis of datasets in order to re-create historical events, analyse patterns of behaviour, and model counterfactual scenarios.
David puts a clear focus on understanding the business processes and products that are the subject of the dispute or investigation, so he can ensure that the data analytics work his team undertakes is embedded in the facts of the case and provides genuine and robust insight.
David is recognized by Who’s Who Legal as a Global Leader in ‘Digital and Data’ and as an ‘Investigations Digital Forensics Expert’: https://whoswholegal.com/david-waterfield
