Chris Hine

Partner, Forensic Services, Manchester 

I joined Crowe UK in 2018 as the principal partner working on expert witness assignments within the Forensic Services team. I have been a partner specialising in such cases for more than 25 years.

I have a wealth of experience in dealing with many different types of cases and understand the importance of providing strategic advice. I receive instructions to act on behalf of claimants and defendants separately, as well as on a single joint expert basis and have acted in the role of the expert determining disputes. I have given expert evidence many times, including matters in the High Court, the Crown Court as well as at arbitrations.

I have also assisted in the resolution process at numerous mediations and settlement meetings. Over the years, I have been involved with, and prepared expert witness reports in, many different areas of forensic accountancy, with a particular focus on multinational disputes and those involving the sports sector (especially football).
