Allen & Overy (A&O) has lost Hong Kong-based litigation partner Cameron Scott to the Accountancy Investigation & Discipline Board (AIDB) in London.
Scott, who focuses on insurance, professional indemnity and insolvency litigation, will be replaced by London litigation partner Angus Ross. Ross, an Australian and English-qualified lawyer, is due to relocate in a couple of weeks.
Andrew Jeffries, A&O head of Asian litigation, said: “It [Scott’s departure] was entirely voluntary and a bit of a surprise for us. We’re sorry to see him go.”
Scott, who was at the office for three and a half years, left in January and joined the AIDB earlier this month as executive counsel. He will be responsible for investigating complaints and, if appropriate, prosecuting cases against accountancy firms and accountants.
