Also appointed a Director, Chris Rudland is a member of BRG’s Construction practice. He is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor (MRICS) with over 10 years of experience working on a broad range of construction projects across the globe, as well as on quantum expert witness engagements for large scale disputes.

Rudland’s experience includes working on projects in the power, pharmaceutical, logistics, real estate and government defence industries. He has worked alongside quantum experts on domestic and international disputes valued in the billions of dollars and has testified before an arbitral tribunal in Singapore.

Prior to joining Berkeley Research Group, Rudland served FTI Consulting for over three years in Singapore, and before that, he worked for several building developers as a quantity surveyor.

Commenting on the appointments, Mustafa Hadi, Co-leader of BRG’s APAC region, said: “Crosby brings increased depth to valuation and damages capability, as well as our energy and resources industry expertise. From his base in Vancouver, Crosby will work closely with the firm’s APAC offices and form an important nexus between our APAC practice and British Columbia’s global mining companies who are active in the region.”

“With Chris joining, our Construction practice now has boots on the ground in APAC, where our practice has been actively engaged for many years, and we see considerable scope for growth in this practice area,” added Hadi.

BRG’s Singapore office offers a range of the firm’s global portfolio services, including disputes, valuation and damages, forensic accounting, strategic investigations, forensic technology and analytics, and energy industry advisory.
