Marc Clifton

Marc is a Partner at Frenkels Forensics, leading on our Criminal and Proceeds of Crime (“POCA”) cases and is the firm’s IT and Data Analysis expert. Marc has provided his expertise, assisting prosecuting and defendant legal teams, in many criminal matters (both privately and publicly funded).

Marc heads up our team of forensic managers and analysts from our Lichfield office, who assist him primarily with the analysis/investigation as part of his criminal and POCA caseload.

As our IT expert, Marc leads on cases involving Digital Forensics (or ‘Computer Forensics’). Digital forensics often forms part of a larger investigation where, for example, bespoke IT skills are required to gain access to financial (or other relevant) data. This could range from ethical hacking (to access data) of smartphones to the extraction of digital point of sale (“till”) data for deeper analysis (within SQL).

Marc has been a part of the team at Frenkels Forensics since 2010 and thrives on the high variety of cases he is involved in. His combination of digital forensics and financial analysis skills has proven particularly useful on a number of occasions. An example of this is when he identified files within a forensic image of a hard drive which had been overlooked by the “other sides” digital forensics experts and which proved to be a more comprehensive and reliable source of financial material than that relied on by the “other sides” forensic accountants.

Marc enjoys incredibly varied work, ranging from ethically hacking mobile phones to uncover evidence of commercial impropriety, to the detailed analysis of over 160 inter-related bank accounts (some 180,000 transactions) in a complex alleged money laundering criminal case.

Marc has been involved in a number of high-profile cases, including a matter of fraud by staff at a large London-based transport authority and recently another matter involving a circa £400 million fraud involving the off plan purchase of holiday properties at various resorts.

Marc devised and created the original online Frenkels Ogden Calculator (a widely used tool that assisted with the calculation of losses). This has since been replaced with the arrival of Frenkels Calculator.

He has attended court on a number of occasions and has given evidence under cross-examination.

Marc has an honours degree in Computer Science and is a professional member of the British Computer Society. He is a general affiliate of the Institute for Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (“ICAEW”) and is a member of the Academy of Experts in the area of financial and data analysis.
Prior to joining Frenkels Forensics, Marc spent 17 years working with various law firms and motor insurers, within claims investigation, litigation and operational management.
