He is regularly appointed as an independent expert on complex and high-value disputes. His core discipline is quantum, but he has also provided effective evidence in relation to delay and the standard of performance of quantity surveyors and project managers. Furthermore, having been instructed in arbitration or litigation on more than 50 occasions Michael has testified in a number of forums and jurisdictions including the UK, France, Denmark, UAE, Qatar and Australia.
