Jake Marsh has been working in investigations and risk management for many years having started his career working for the private investigations firm of Lord Stevens, the former Metropolitan Police Commissioner.

He has been a lead investigator in numerous sport industry cases covering football player transfers and club ownership, doping, and match-fixing.
