Meet the speaker

Andrew Woodward is a chartered civil engineer, with more than 25 years’ experience within the industry delivering complex civil engineering and infrastructure projects. Andrew has worked with major contractors, delivering large-scale highways projects, motorways schemes, bridge reconstruction works, marine works and process engineering type works. During these years and as a party to dispute, Andrew was involved in a number of arbitrations, adjudications and DAB processes and so understands closely the emotional issues that can also sometimes accompany contentious dispute resolution processes. 

In later years, Andrew has drawn on his experiences and specialized in the dispute field, focusing on the ‘thorny’ issues of delay, disruption, critical delay, concurrent delay and matters of liability.  Andrew is both MCIArb and practicing Party Appointed Expert Witness, for matters of both Quantum and Delay, and is involved in claims and dispute resolution processes on major infrastructure projects throughout the wider GCC region.
