Andrew Kennell is a Senior Managing Director in the FTI Consulting Technology practice and is based in London. Mr. Kennell leads the EMEA Technology Consulting practice and has 20 years of professional experience providing strategic advice to many of the world’s leading organisations, and was an early pioneer of applying and introducing technology to complex litigation, fraud and regulatory investigations in the EU.
Mr. Kennell has provided advice on a substantial number of the UK’s largest and most complex litigation cases, forensic and fraud investigations, public enquiries and global regulatory investigations, and has domain sector expertise in financial services, energy including nuclear, aviation, engineering, pharmaceutical and transport.
Over this period Mr. Kennell has worked on many high profile matters that include the Grupo Torres fraud matter on behalf of the Kuwait Investment Office, Prince Jefri of Brunei vs. Manoukian Brothers, Maxwell Communications Corporation, a number of high profile construction cases, pharmaceutical product liability and patent infringement matters, Sendo Communications dispute with Microsoft, BSkyB vs. EDS, tax trust investigations for the Inland Revenue and an intellectual Property and contract dispute for a global aerospace manufacturer.
In the majority of these cases, Mr. Kennell has headed up teams that have provided a range of services, systems and technologies that allow his clients to substantially improve the efficiency and quality of the advice that they are able to offer on the case.
Mr. Kennell holds a BSc honours degree in pure physics, which coupled with his early scientific research in complex pattern recognition, and analysis brings a unique and powerful approach to problems that involve deep and complex data mining and the extraction of valuable pieces of information rapidly.
Mr. Kennell specialises in providing strategic advice and solutions on highly complex multi jurisdictional regulatory investigations. In recent investigations, Mr. Kennell has simultaneously deployed teams across many countries outside of the EU using proprietary software and techniques to analyse and review large and complex sets of financial data in extremely compressed periods. In one recent investigation, approximately one billion records have been reviewed and analysed in a period measured in months.
Prior to joining FTI Consulting, Mr. Kennell was a founding director and equity owner of G3 Consulting and held professional positions in the Forensic Services division of PricewaterhouseCoopers for six years and scientific research positions with the UK Ministry of Defence.
