My career in Engineering spans more than 45 years. I have worked in many countries for many Clients, both civil and military and many instructing solicitors, large and small. I bring to the Expert Witness profession real hands-on design and commercial experience backed by formal training in report writing and court presentation. I set up Listavia in 1970 and I am Chairman and CEO of the independent business Listavia International Consultants, formed in 1990.

I have been an active independent member of the Academy of Experts for more than 12 years, and I helped in the formulation of the CPR (Civil Procedure Rules) and the founding of the Expert Witness Institute in 1997.
