Paul Ascroft

Senior Director


Paul is a Senior Director at GMCS and specialises in the analysis, preparation, and determination of claims and particularly the evaluation of quantum. Paul has gained invaluable experience as a Quantity Surveyor over the last 18 years, starting his career in the United Kingdom before moving to mainland Europe and later the Middle East working with investors, developers, end-users, engineers, contractors and subcontractors. He has the insight needed to understand competing requirements and perspectives.

For the last 12 years he has been primarily involved in complex disputes relating to the Middle East, providing arbitration and litigation support services. Paul has been the lead assistant to several quantum experts over the years and is a respected expert witness in his own right. He has provided written and oral evidence, often relating to very large and complex disputes. He has been cross-examined by leading silks, he has presented to esteemed tribunals and he has experience of “hot-tubbing”.

A top law firm has recently praised Paul hard work on a very complex case during a 7 day hearing that took place in 2020 and stated “…he is clearly knowledgeable in his field, his written reports were excellent. His presence provided a level of reassurance to both the client and to us as legal counsel. We would have no hesitation in recommending him in the role of quantum expert”.
