The four leading members of Vero Consulting’s team had worked together at Moore Global’s London office for over 10 years before they moved to their new firm in 2016. They continue to work well together as a team, with each individual bringing a different strength and contribution to each case.
By working flexible in very small teams (usually no more than 2-3) and using technology to manage our projects, we bring all our experience and expertise to bear on the business issue while keeping our overheads very low.
The team are fluent in 8 European languages and so are equipped to undertake assignments on most of the continent.

Roger Lustig B.D., F.C.A., M.A.E
Roger qualified as a Chartered Accountant in central London working on smaller clients before joining a major firm to work on the audit of large corporates. He was recruited by a client and there followed a period working for major corporates in the electrical and construction sectors.
In 1994 he joined a top-10 firm firm to grow their social housing sector, which included working on his first forensic accounting assignments.
In 2003, he moved his practice to his own boutique firm, which grew and was acquired by Moore Stephens in 2011.

Roger has presented evidence in court and been cross examined on many cases on which he has worked.
James Wise B.Sc., A.C.A.
Obsessive about finding the truth in each case he takes on, James combines lateral thinking with a practical and commercial approach. While keeping it simple, clear and logical, James presents findings based on exploring the intricacies of each case – nothing is assumed.
James has specialised in forensic accounting for over 25 years, he has worked on quantum and causation forensic cases, across multiple sectors, in the High Court in the UK and in International Arbitrations held in Continental Europe. James has focussed on compensation claims and business valuations. He has been involved in a wide range of expert witness and advisory work including:

|• loss of profit claims||• expert determinations|
|• contract breaches||• insurance claims|
|• valuations||• delays and defects claims|
