• MKS investigations team bolstered with further new hire
• Sarah Margarson’s experience includes spell at Serious Fraud Office

Martin Kenney & Co (MKS) has further bolstered its investigative capabilities with the hire of financial investigator, Sarah Margarson.

Sarah has previously worked for the Serious Fraud Office in the UK, as well as the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force and a specialist BVI insolvency firm.

Like Harley Thomas, who joined us in the summer, Sarah is a distinction graduate from the School of Justice at UCLan in the UK, holding both a First-Class Honours degree in Policing and Criminal Investigation and a Distinction for her MSc in Financial Investigation. 

She was previously an intern at MKS during 2017.

Welcome addition

Sarah Margarson said she was thrilled to be returning to MKS:

“I am thrilled to be returning to the Investigation Unit at Martin Kenney & Co, the firm I attended as an intern in 2017.

“I have gained valuable financial investigation experience during my career and I am delighted for the opportunity to contribute my skillset within the unit.”

Managing Director of Investigations, Tony McClements, added:

“I’m delighted to have secured Sarah’s services. She has squeezed a lot of experience into her fledgling career, including being a financial investigator with the prestigious Serious Fraud Office in London, and more recently the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force.

“Sarah is also a former Masters student of mine, so I am eminently aware of her capabilities, which will see her quickly becoming an integral member of the Investigation Unit.

“She is driven and will join the rest of the team in going the extra mile for our clients.”

Managing Partner, Martin Kenney, also said:

“I’m very happy to welcome Sarah to the team. She comes to us with impeccable credentials and I know will prove a very valuable asset.

“Her joining also underlines our commitment to expanding our investigative capabilities, at a time when cases are ever more complex and demanding in nature.

“In doing so, we’re also future-proofing MKS, building a great mix of both youth and experience across our operations.”


Martin Kenney & Co enjoys a strong relationship with the UCLan School of Justice: Tony McClements is one of the School’s guest lecturers, and Martin Kenney was given an honorary appointment as a Visiting Professor to the School.

MKS also sponsors an annual award and bursary for one Masters student from the School of Justice, for making an “outstanding contribution to the study of financial investigation”.
