I ‘ve been acting as an independent expert witness in disputes for over 20 years. Alongside my expert practice I keep my technical skills and industry experience up to date through a range of projects, most recently by developing and publishing several Apps for archaeologists.
Live experience of project management, procurement, development, testing and support, combined with my previous career with major IT vendors, means I can see the ‘IT problem’ from both client and supplier points of view.
As an expert advisor or expert witness I can give you an objective view of the issues that have caused a project or contract to fail and present them in clear, accessible terms so that you and your legal team can concentrate on looking for the best commercial options in a dispute. I have experience in the Technology and Construction Court, Court of Session and arbitrations on disputes from £100k to £500M, including project based disputes and those involving intellectual property, copyright and patents.
