Nick Russell named Civil and Structural Engineer Expert Witness of the Year
Congratulations to Past President, Nick Russell CEng FIStructE, who has been named Civil and Structural Engineer Expert Witness of the Year by Lawyer Monthly magazine.
The awards recognise experts with exceptional knowledge and experience in their field, and a strong track record in helping courts reach sound legal decisions.
Nick, Director of civil and structural engineering consultancy Thomasons, was nominated by the barristers and solicitors with whom he works.
Jonathan Mitchell, Barrister at Ropewalk Chambers, said:
“Nick is one of the best expert witnesses I have ever called. He has that rare ability to explain to a layman a difficult, technical subject concisely and with absolute clarity. He is easy to work with, responds quickly and in the witness box presents as a balanced and thoughtful witness. One cannot ask for more from an expert witness.”
Nick is also a Visiting Professor at the University of Surrey, a member of its Advisory Board and vice chair of the Joint Board of Moderators, which accredits civil engineering degrees.
