Sought-after expert witness and valuations expert Andrew Caldwell has joined Navigant as a Managing Director. Through the appointment, Navigant has boosted the capacity of its London office, along with its global Disputes and Economics practice.

Andrew Caldwell is one of the UK’s most experienced valuation specialists, with more than 30 years of involvement in the valuation of companies, shares and intellectual property, as well as more than 20 years’ experience as an expert witness. An accredited mediator and founding member of the Expert Witness Institute, Caldwell is also a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

During his career, Navigant’s new London-based Managing Director has conducted several hundred engagements, led multiple arbitrations, and testified as an expert witness at trial 12 times, being cross-examined in various courts, and before arbitral tribunals, around the world; including the UK High Court and the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce. His specialty fields include financial services, energy, construction, retail, telecommunications, and government.

Navigant Consulting

Before arriving at Navigant, Caldwell was most recently a Managing Director for the Berkeley Research Group. He spent over four years with the professional services firm, during which time he delivered financial valuation advice in respect of companies, shares, intellectual property and financial assets and liabilities, together with damages in litigation and international arbitration. Earlier in his early career, Caldwell became a Senior Valuations Partner at BDO.

His extensive 14 year tenure with the consultancy saw him eventually become Head of Valuations at the firm, a position he held through the valuation process of client Northern Rock, during the bank’s infamous collapse in 2008. Prior to this, Caldwell spent six years with Corporate Valuations, where he became a Partner before his exit for BDO in 1999.

Now, Caldwell will be required to leverage his considerable expertise to bolster Navigant’s global Disputes and Economics practice. The practice provides accounting, valuation, financial, and industry expert opinion in a variety of sectors, and involves analysis of issues presented through experienced testimony before tribunals around the world. Alongside his new role at Navigant, Caldwell will also maintain his position as Chairman of the Society of Share and Business Valuers.

Commenting on his new challenge via career networking site LinkedIn, Caldwell said, “I am delighted to announce my new role as Managing Director in Navigant’s global Disputes and Economics practice based in London. I look forward to bringing my extensive valuations experience to an established team who support clients on a broad range of disputes in litigation and arbitration, including assessment of damages, complex accounting issues and valuation services.”

Dave Tortorello, Disputes, Forensics, and Legal Technology segment leader at Navigant, said of the appointment, “Andrew is another great addition to our strong global platform and will complement an established London team delivering a broad range of dispute resolution services including assessment of damages, complex accounting issues, and valuation services.”

Mark Taylor, Managing Director in the global Disputes and Economics practice and head of commercial disputes in EMEA, added, “Our clients have come to rely on Navigant to provide expert opinion, testimony, and practical advice to help assess and mitigate risks. Andrew’s knowledge and experience adds depth and breadth to our talented group of industry-leading experts.”
