O’Connor Davies Expands Litigation Support Team with Principal

Harrison, N.Y.-based O’Connor Davies LLP (FY13 net revenue of $98 million) announced that David Gannaway has been admitted as the firm’s newest principal. Gannaway brings more than 25 years of experience in fraud investigations and forensic accounting to O’Connor Davies’ growing litigation support team.
