Senior Partner, Fenwick Elliott LLP

We had a very technically demanding dispute which involved several parties within the Contract. CNS team were able to carefully unravel the issues and clearly show the critical delays and any culpability matters that arose and explain them with simple graphics and narrative. They delivered a clear presentation to a full forum of people in the mediation hearing which helped us reach a settlement with the parties. I would recommend CNS as they are focused on providing simple solutions to complex issues

Vincent made such a contribution to our ability to improve the financials on the Lulea project , something that completely turned the EMEA leadership opinions around about our business and made them interested in getting them that next big project .

Elizabeth Chase

Vice President - Global Solutions Business Transformation, Vertiv

“I found Vincent to be a thoroughly prepared, measured and comprehensive analyst.”

“Vincent worked well as part of a team and was able to address all queries that fell within his brief”

“Whilst Vincent had good people skills including emotional intelligence he was rigorous in not being owned by the client and told them what they needed to hear rather than what they wanted to hear.”


CNS were recommended to us by a respected Practicing Arbitrator/Adjudicator, and we were not disappointed.
We found Ian and Katherine to be professional, inquiring and contractually knowledgeable.

Their straight forward no bull approach is refreshing in a time when we all need simple clear understandings with a message to put forward. Ian and Katherine did not take, yes or no as an answer but sought to investigate the evidence presented to them and apply it as appropriate.

We have no reservations in recommending them highly.

CNS has been engaged on many of our high value civil engineering and rail projects to help either with recovery or demonstrating extensions of time. They gain a quick understanding of complex delay issues and present them in a fundamentally simple and clear way. They have excellent management and planning skills supplemented with good contractual knowledge, which enables them to communicate the delay issues clearly using the planning software. I highly recommend them.

CNS’ analytical approach enabled us to present complex delay events in a concise manner and with real clarity. Their assistance accelerated settlement of what would otherwise have become an extremely lengthy and costly dispute.
