The firm has welcomed data analytics professional Deepak Pillai and forensic accounting specialist Daniel Heywood to the FTS practice.
Mr Pillai’s new role sees him join the practice as a director, while Mr Heywood joins as a senior manager.
According to a statement from Clayton Utz, Mr Pillai brings to the firm a decade’s experience in providing analytical services for major clients in Australia and North America, across the financial services, resources, government and other sectors.
He specialises in technical analysis of large electronic data sets, particularly utilising advanced data capture and analytic modelling techniques, the firm said.
Meanwhile, Mr Heywood brings over nine years’ experience to the firm, having advised on complex financial accounting and investigations in Australia and internationally.
The firm noted that Mr Heywood also has extensive experience in loss quantification, including class actions, post-acquisition disputes, insurance claims, tax-related fraud investigations, business failures and financial products.
“Attracting two professionals as experienced as Deepak and Daniel is not only fantastic for our team, but also means we’re able to offer our clients an even greater scope of specialist services in the areas of data analytics, forensic accounting and investigations,” said FTS practice head Paul Fontanot.
These latest additions to the FTS team comes after Clayton Utz appointed Owen Bourke and Meg McKechnie in May.
