Jon is one of the few experts worldwide equally capable of acting as both quantum and delay expert. Based in Asia for the past 16 years, he has been appointed expert on many of the region’s most complex disputes.
He holds an impressive portfolio of over 85 expert appointments including matters such as delay analysis and progress reviews; preparation of extension of time (EOT) claims; critique on suitability and fitness of programmes; critical path analysis; establishing link between “cause and effect”; assessment of concurrent delays; appropriateness of different delay analysis methodologies; valuation of variations and prolongation costs; evaluation of disruption and acceleration claims; loss of profits assessment; terminations, suspensions and loss of productivity evaluation.
Previous roles have been held on both sides of the construction industry, having worked for contracting and consulting organisations. Jon has given evidence in arbitration hearings under ICC, SIAC, SCMA, DIAC, HKIAC, SCC, KLRCA and LCIA rules and court and arbitration proceedings in Singapore, the UK, Hong Kong, Australia, Malaysia and Sweden. He is well versed in giving oral evidence under cross-examination in litigation and arbitration proceedings including expert witness conferencing (“hot-tubbing”).
Jon has over 35 years of experience in onshore and offshore oil and gas, marine, shipbuilding and conversions, petrochemical, infrastructure, transportation, utility, building and civil engineering projects throughout Asia, the Middle East, Europe, US, South America and Africa. His depth and extent of technical knowledge in all these sectors, means he is highly sought after for the resolution of high-value complex contract disputes.
His experience also includes several appointments as expert determiner as well as full-term and ad hoc dispute board appointments.
He is a fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and the Academy of Experts.
WWL says: Jon Prudhoe is highlighted as “particularly well known as a quantum expert”, while being “probably the best delay expert in APAC”.
