HKA rises up global ranking of Who’s Who Legal Top 100 Firms

Expanding consultancy stands 2nd overall and remains 1st in construction.

HKA – the global consultancy in risk mitigation, dispute resolution, expert witness, and litigation support services – has leapt to the number two position in the Who’s Who Legal (WWL) rankings.

The firm jumped six places in the latest analysis of the WWL Top 100 Firms worldwide, while maintaining its prime position in both WWL league tables for Construction and for Construction – Quantum, Delay & Technical.

Based upon comprehensive, independent research, the higher rating reflects the increased weighting attached to HKA’s thought leadership and other factors, including feedback from peers, clients and instructing lawyers. The firm also returned very high scores for the breadth of its practice areas and geographical reach. HKA is now judged the number-one consultancy in China (following another six-place rise). The firm also comes top in jurisdictions from Saudi Arabia and Qatar to South Africa, Scotland and France.

In terms of practice areas, HKA not only remains the top firm in the two Construction categories; it is also second in Consulting Experts – Quantum of Damages (up five places) and third in both Arbitration (up five places) and Commercial Litigation. Sustained growth over recent years underlies other increases in the WWL global rankings for practice areas such as Consulting Experts – Forensic Accountants, Investigations, and Energy.

With more than 1,000 consultants, experts, and advisors working from offices across 17 countries, HKA continues to expand through organic growth and acquisition. The consultancy, for example, has consolidated its position in Forensic Accounting and Commercial Damages services in the US, EMEA and other territories, with the additions of TM Financial Forensics, Credibility International and ASQ Consulting Group, and also through significant Partner hires.

“I am delighted with our performance in the Who’s Who Legal global rankings. It is a testimony to the high calibre, professionalism and outstanding work of our many experts and their teams worldwide. Reaching the number two position globally in the highly competitive overall rankings of the WWL Top 100 Firms also reflects the success of our strategic growth and our commitment to continuously improving how we service our clients across all of our service offerings. It’s very gratifying that the industry recognises our people and our global reputation for impartial, incisive and authoritative advice.”
