arbitration mediation adjudication expertise


I have acted as expert providing both technical and quantum opinion in a wide range of engineering disputes involving design, supply, delivery, installation, testing, commissioning and setting to work of building services, heating ventilation and air conditioning, mechanical and electrical equipment; controls including building and energy management systems, SCADA and PLC control systems, access control, fire alarm and security systems; computer centres supported by online UPS system and diesel generator; process plant and power systems, control equipment and cabling and valuation of variations, delay, disruption and prolongation arising.

I have acted as expert witness at all pleading stages and given evidence under examination four times.

I am able use a team based approach. My experience of litigation and arbitration is that there can be tremendous peaks and troughs in the support work to be undertaken. Because of this I have developed a close professional network and I am able to deploy a team assigning other consultants as required to investigative or analytical tasks.

By using an eclectic mix of individual perspectives the opinion offered is more accurate, durable, refined and robust. This also means that I am able to provide litigation support services in larger disputes which would be beyond the capability of many firms.
