Structural Expert Witness

London/ UK

We are proud to be supporting a highly respected consultancy with a strong presence in the technical dispute and expert witness market in Europe.

It is focused on providing specialist Structural related dispute resolution support and advice to solicitors, builders and construction stakeholders.

As part of its offering, this organisation has a specialist technical engineering and expert witness business. It specifically provides Architectural, Structural, Civil, Geotechnical, Project Management, Mechanical and Electrical Expert Witness services in respect to disputed projects where design or engineering is a factor. This successful business needs to strengthen strategically at Director level and has a specific opportunity for someone to join as a Structural Engineering Expert Witness.

The opportunity is suitable for someone who is either already acting as an Expert Witness in engineering. Or a senior level Structural (Building or Civil) engineer with the experience, qualifications, management expertise and gravitas to be successfully developed into an Expert Witness.


  • Operational Management and leadership of a small team of forensic engineers.
  • Producing Expert Witness reports in relation to structural engineering matters
  • Providing testimony and strategic advice in relation to disputed projects
  • Contributing to the strategy of the Technical Expert Witness and Dispute Resolution business.
  • Working closely with existing Structural Experts and a diverse team of other experts.
  • Business Development and Marketing to new and existing clients.
  • Attending and participating in seminars on construction law
  • Overseeing the delivery of niche structural engineering projects.


  • Degree qualified in structural (building or civil) engineering, ideally chartered with additional legal qualifications or a willingness to gain these may be beneficial.
  • At least part of your experience is likely to have been spent a senior management level within a respected engineering consultancy.
  • Ability to demonstrate experience across a wide range of project types in both construction type (steel, concrete, timber, glass, GRG, GRP, fabric etc) and project location.
  • An established, clean reputation with excellent technical knowledge, analytical and investigative skills.
  • Excellent report writing skills and use of English language
  • A good relationship builder, who is confident handling important work for high profile clients.
  • Somebody friendly, affable, diplomatic and confident who enjoys team work.
  • Someone who has had exposure or acted as an Expert Witness or been cross-examined or understands the court process would be beneficial but not essential if the relevant motivation, technical aptitude, industry and management experience is present.

The successful candidate would be joining a friendly, established group of Experts and consultants in a business with vast opportunities for career development. Even though the work is often contentious, complex and challenging, the spirit amongst them is always excellent.
