Biography:

Who's Who Legal Construction: Expert Witnesses

Dr Sincock is the technical director of AMOG Consulting.

Dr Sincock has over 35 years' experience in structural engineering, naval architecture, hydrodynamics and offshore engineering, and bulk materials handling for mining machinery and other equipment. This has been gained consulting on projects in the North Sea, the Gulf of Mexico, South East Asia, South America, Africa, India, the Gulf of Arabia and Australia.

Dr Sincock has considerable expertise in forensic failure investigation and expert witness work. Studies in these areas have ranged in scope from problems involving mining industry machinery and process equipment, offshore structures (fixed and floating) and high-speed military vessels, to commercial shipping and harbour installations.

In these failure investigations and expert witness studies, Dr Sincock has investigated issues including; design errors; shortcomings in design approach and deficiencies in quality assurance; fabrication and installation errors; structural failures due to overloading and fatigue damage; contract, performance, and variation disputes; crew injuries due to vessel motions; inappropriate operating practices; failure to correctly assess environmental conditions and resulting loads; and patent disputes. He has taken the lead in preparing expert reports arising from these investigations, taken part in expert conclaves and arbitrations proceedings, worked as a consultant expert to counsel, and provided expert testimony in court. Dr Sincock has extensive experience in providing technical liaison with clients and their legal representatives.

Dr Sincock undertook his postgraduate studies as a research fellow at University College London, under the professorship of R Eatock Taylor. His PhD research concentrated on numerical modelling of the non-linear motions of compliant and floating offshore vessels.

WWL says: Paul Sincock is a widely recognised testifying expert who is commended by sources for his excellent work on engineering disputes.
