Gavin is a director at Dolman Bateman.

Gavin is a Chartered Accountant and has worked in the accounting and finance industry since 2002. He specialises in the Building and Construction Industry and has been involved in the industry his entire life, having spent his early years on building sites alongside his father and brother who are both builders. His knowledge of the building industry exceeds that of the usual accountant, as he comes from a family of builders and accountants.

The industry has many specific issues that are not always understood by accountants who have never worked in, or managed a building company.

He has gained a huge amount of knowledge from all his years of working as a tax accountant, working on building sites, managing his family's building companies, working with his building clients, property developers, and of course working as an accountant and adviser across a range of other industries.

Gavin’s knowledge is enhanced by the fact that Dolman Bateman is a specialist forensic accounting firm that specialises in many industries. He has seen a large number of things that go wrong in the business world. What that means to you is that he has specialised knowledge to assist you to avoid those problems.
