Professional services firm HKA has named Roula Harfouche as a Partner, based in the firm’s London headquarters. Harfouche arrives having previously worked with FTI Consulting, EY, Arthur Andersen, and a host of other top professional services brands.

Headquartered in London, HKA has more than 500 advisors and consultants in its organisation. Spread across 47 offices in 19 countries, the professional services firm provides clients in the construction, manufacturing, process and technology industries with consulting, expert and advisory services.

The latest chapter of the firm’s ongoing expansion has seen HKA install forensic accounting expert Roula Harfouche as a Partner in its London office. The move takes the firm’s forensic accounting and commercial damages (FACD) practice to more than 50 experts and consultants worldwide. Harfouche will now play a key role in the further development of the FACD service offered to HKA’s clients, alongside other London-based recognised thought leaders Colin Johnson and David Saunders.

Toby Hunt, Head of Europe & Chief Business Development Officer, said, “Roula’s considerable experience and reputation as an industry-leading Expert will add substantial value to our existing FACD service offering in Europe. Working with other multi-disciplinary Experts in Europe and around the world, Roula will help to grow HKA’s FACD practice as we continue to provide clients with a service offering that is constantly evolving in response to their needs.”

Recognised as a global elite thought leader in Arbitration Expert Witnesses 2021 and Quantum of Damages 2021, Harfouche specialises in contentious valuations and the assessment of quantum issues in high-value international arbitration and litigation cases. Prior to joining HKA, she was a Partner at Accuracy. Earlier, she also spent spells with FTI Consultingand Big Four firm EY, as well as being a former member of the forensic accounting group at Clifford Chance, an equity analyst at Morgan Stanley, and a member of the economic and financial consulting division of Arthur Andersen.

Commenting on her move, Harfouche remarked, “I am excited to join a forward-thinking, professional and industry-leading firm of experts, consultants and advisors that has developed a reputation for excellence. Working closely with the FACD Expert teams in Europe and worldwide, I look forward to further building on HKA’s already established FACD practice.”

HKA spent the last 12 months looking to grow its offering to meet client demand. In the summer of 2020, this saw the firm purchase specialist engineering consultancy Probyn Miers. The move enhanced HKA’s expert witness service offering, increasing its expert witnesses by around 140.
