Nicola Caley has re-joined consulting firm HKA as a principal in the UK, having previously served the firm for nine years in its Dubai office.

Nicola Caley spent eleven years in Dubai with HKA and legal predecessor Hill International*, during which she has led and worked on many complex and technically demanding claims assignments for clients in the infrastructure, buildings and oil and gas sectors. 

With a decade of experience in the UK under her belt, Caley has more than twenty-two years of experience in the construction industry. She specialises in strategic claims management, claims determination, contractual claims preparation and defence and dispute resolution.

The past two years she worked for Turner & Townsend as an associate director, based in the UK.

Commenting on her move back to HKA, Casey said, “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to re-join HKA’s market leading team of claims and dispute resolution professionals in Europe. I look forward to working with colleagues and clients (old and new), to achieve positive outcomes for our clients’ projects.” 

Casey is a Solicitor and Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, and holds a post graduate diploma in arbitration from Queen Mary University (UK) and a master’s degree in construction law from Robert Gordon University (Scotland). 

Toby Hunt, Partner and Head of Europe said, “I am delighted to welcome Nicola to HKA’s growing team in London. Nicola is an experienced consultant with an outstanding reputation and a successful track record of consistently delivering for clients and advising on claims and commercial matters on major projects in challenging environments. We are excited to have her on board.” 

The appointment comes shortly after HKA promoted Dubai-based Bill Haggart to Partner and hired Igor Corelj as a Director

* HKA was founded late 2016 following the buyout of the Hill Construction Consulting Group. Today the consultancy – a specialist in risk mitigation and dispute resolution within the capital projects and infrastructure sector – has over 1,000 consultants across 17 countries.
