My depth of experience supports complex legal cases where financial interpretation and understanding are vital

David Owens
Head of KTS Forensic

I head up KTS Forensic, a dedicated forensic team of professionals based in Cardiff Bay, delivering services across England and Wales to the legal profession.


I am a founding director of KTS Owens Thomas a leading Welsh accountancy, taxation and business advisory firm with 3 offices across South Wales. I commenced my career with a Big 4 firm, qualifying in the 80’s and I originally specialised in auditing and assurance.  That experience was of great benefit in supporting complex legal cases where financial interpretation and understanding are vital. Experience includes working with the South Wales Fraud Squad on tax fraud, income suppression cases and retail scams by staff in various sectors across multiple locations.

I set up my own firm in 1990 providing compliance, audit and business solution services. Client sector experience is extensive having worked with business owners in Wales, England, Europe , North America, Africa and Hong Kong.


My degree is from the University of Wales Institute of Science and Technology.  I also attended Harvard Business School to study ‘Leading Professional Services Firms’, an experience which has manifested through many aspects of my working career and continued professional learning. I have carried out Expert Witness training with Bond Solon.

Forensic Fact

I have played lead guitar since my teens in tribute bands cranking out covers from the 60’s through to the Naughties and even some more recent, although my album collection is still on vinyl!
