3 Pump Court takes on forensic accountant

Winchester-based set 3 Pump Court Chambers has taken on accountant BDO Stoy Hayward’s regional forensic accounting head Mike Mason as a pupil.

Mason, who was BDO’s forensic accounting chief in Southampton, said he decided to qualify as a barrister and move to the bar on the back of his contact with the legal profession during his time at BDO.

“I’ve become increasingly interested in the legal side of my job over the years and if it wasn’t for the flexibility and encouragement of BDO Stoy Hayward I might never have had the opportunity to go and work as a barrister,” said Mason.
