Who's Who Legal Construction: Expert Witnesses

Lee Cookson is a leading forensic delay expert with over 35 years of experience in the construction industry. He has acted as delay expert on numerous international construction and engineering programme and delay related disputes. He has given written and oral evidence in international arbitration and in the Technology and Construction Court in the UK. He has also assisted parties at mediation, both internationally and in the UK.

Lee’s expert commissions cover a wide range of industries and sectors. His building experience includes health, education, retail, hotel, office, industrial, residential and fit-out projects. His engineering experience includes motorways, bridges, underpasses, tunnelling, rail, land reclamation, port and marine works, pipe-laying and fabrication projects. His process experience includes waste-to-energy, oil and gas and power.

Lee’s clients include employers, developers, main contractors, large subcontractors, joint venture partnerships and professional services organisations. He is experienced assisting both claimants, defendants and respondents. Lee’s appointments include, the independent analysis of delay on projects for the purposes of establishing the correct quantum of any time extensions due; the correct quantum of delay arising from alleged professional negligence, typically in respect of the late release of drawings and information; and the correct quantum of delay for the purposes of establishing loss and damages, including the identification of concurrent delay. He has also been appointed to consider delay on early termination cases.

Lee takes a practical, pragmatic, fact-driven approach to analysing delay. He is skilled at unravelling seemingly intractable problems, identifying the key issues and deriving order from chaos. He adds clarity through clear and unambiguous testimony.

WWL says: Lee Cookson continues to receive high praise from interviewees, thanks to his excellent abilities in handling disruption and delay analysis in relation to international disputes.
