Ridge and Partners LLP (Ridge), an award-winning, multi-discipline property and construction consultancy, has appointed a new Partner in its Expert Witness and Advisory Services (EWAS) team.
Tim Haynes, who has joined the Ridge office in London, will focus on quantum and delay matters. As an expert in construction-related disputes, Tim will bolster the team’s wealth of experience in providing expert advice and evidence in litigation, adjudication, and arbitration, as well as adding to the expertise in claim preparation and defence.
Tim has more than 30 years of experience, particularly in the analysis and resolution of commercial and contractual problems on major building, infrastructure, rail and petrochemical contracts in the UK, Europe and the Middle East.
Lucy Osborne, who leads the EWAS team at Ridge, said: “Tim is a very important hire for us who will help to strengthen our established EWAS team. Our growing team continues to operate globally, and prides itself not only in providing outstanding experts, but also in having a continuing involvement in live projects.”
Tim Haynes added: “This is a fantastic opportunity to join a highly-regarded team within the property and construction industry and I’m delighted to be working closely with Lucy to continue to build upon the fantastic work already undertaken. As a specialist in commercial and contractual audits on major projects, with experience across both private and public sectors of the construction industry, I hope to add strength and breadth to the multidisciplinary services Ridge provides.”
Ridge now employs over 625 people in 11 offices across the UK and offers a unique range of property consultancy services. Since 2018, the business has grown by over 40 consultants, with plans to recruit more in 2019.
