HKA is the world’s leading expert witness practice in the engineering and construction industries. Our professionals include hundreds of experts with vast experience in every industry sector and discipline. They have the commercial, financial, planning, scheduling, technical and language skills to get quickly to the heart of the most complex issues.

Our experts are specialists in Quantum, Engineering, Delay, Disruption and Damages (QED+). They bring to bear not only this spectrum of expertise from their various disciplines but also practical experience of every major industry sector.

HKA has a long and enviable track record of working for the world’s largest international law firms, on many of its major complex megaprojects. With QED+, HKA’s clients’ legal representatives deal with an integrated team rather than having to select and manage multiple experts from different service providers.

In the engineering field alone, our specialist disciplines range from marine to metallurgy and materials, electrical to environmental, and process to power engineering. Our engineers work alongside HKA construction managers, forensic accountants, planners and schedulers, project managers, and quantity surveyors, many of whom are dual-qualified, mostly in construction law and arbitration.

Our specialists provide support to clients, courts and arbiters to resolve disputes in international or local arbitration, litigation, expert determination or mediation.

According to the 2019 issue of Who’s Who Legal: Construction – the international guide to expert advisers on financial quantum, delay and disruption, and forensic technical issues in major construction litigation – HKA remains the foremost firm in our field, with an impressive 31 consultants listed, drawn from our offices in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.

We’re also proud to be an accredited Corporate Provider of Expert Services with the Academy of Experts with individually accredited experts from Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia. We are currently the largest Corporate Provider within the Academy of Experts.
