Ten US-based professionals from HKA, a risk and disputes consultancy, were featured in Who’s Who Legal’s (WWL) list of expert witnesses.

This year marks the first time WWL has listed experts alongside lawyers in its “Thought Leaders USA” guide.

WWL was established in 1996 by Law Business Research limited, an independent London-based publishing group. The site features over 24,000 of the world’s leading private practice lawyers and 2,500 consulting experts from 150+ national jurisdictions. WWL says it is impossible to buy entry into the publication – which companies and government agencies use to reduce the risk of receiving poor counsel or advisory services.

“We are delighted to see the recognition our experts have received from Who’s Who Legal’s Thought Leaders USA analysis. Being recognized as a Thought Leader is a great honor, and I am thrilled to see 10 of our experts featured across five practice areas,” said Frank Giunta, regional CEO for the Americas, HKA. “Our listed practice areas demonstrate our core service offerings in construction continue to be market-leading, while our growing recognition in our forensic accounting and commercial damages service lines better reflects the fantastic work our experts deliver for our clients in this space.”
