Read what our customers think about the quality of service we provide


Dan Hall, Partner | Gunnercooke

I have instructed David over a number of years to provide QS advice and assistance in relation to Adjudications where I needed his specialist skills and, also, in connection with various projects that my clients were working on. He has always delivered, works really well under time pressure and provides sound, sensible advice that you can rely upon and is considered favourably by the tribunal.

Bill Barton, Director | Barton Legal

When we engage external experts on behalf of clients we have to be certain that they have all the requisite skills, experience and the ability to deliver a strong oral report. We have now instructed David on a number of occasions and each time he has gone above and beyond our expectations. His reports are always detailed and comprehensive, delivered on time and to budget. Our clients regularly report their gratitude for David’s services and we are confident when instructing him because we know he is brilliant. We do not hesitate to recommend David to our clients and contacts for his exceptional expertise and service.

Alex Mosson, Consultant Solicitor | Keystone Law

David was a key member of the team dealing with the complexities of determining value of works and damages arising from the termination of a contract for a biomass power plant. David showed great skill and professionalism in being able to gather and collate necessary evidence from our international client and present a well-structured and substantiated claim. He also provided an expert report and oral evidence at trial (PBS v Bester [2020] EWHC 223 (TCC)). David is very easy to work with, communicative and clearly identifies the quantum issues to be addressed. I will instruct David again.

Jeremy Harris, Partner | Solomon Taylor & Shaw

I had the pleasure of working with David in 2021 on a claim acting for a contractor who had not been paid by the developer for all the work carried out, where David was our expert quantity surveyor. I found David to be most professional throughout the process and a pleasure to work with. Ultimately, his expert report and subsequent oral evidence at trial helped to secure a fantastic outcome for my client ( v (1) Blakebrough & (2) Darrowcourt [2021]). I would have no hesitation in recommending David to other clients in the future.

Conor Ahern, General Counsel | STS Group, Ireland

I previously instructed David in a professional negligence matter. The issues were complex, but I found David’s technical knowledge very beneficial in identifying the key issues. I enjoyed working with David and found him to be a good team player. I would have no hesitation instructing David again in future.

Contractors and subcontractors

Tom O’Connor, Director – O’Connor Contracts Limited
David Daly has advised me since 2021 for contract reviews and as we navigated our way through various projects with a challenging employer. At all times David made me aware of our contractual and commercial position and the risks associated with taking further action. David’s advice was critical in successfully exiting our relationship with that employer and we continue to work together on other matters.

Jim Connolly, Director – Farcon Limited

I have used David for three adjudications now in recent years which have all been successfully resolved before the adjudicator reached a decision. David has always provided us with a first class service and I will have no hesitation in using David again or recommending him to others.

Michael Quinn, Director – Kylemore Services Limited

David Daly has assisted us on a few occasions, and I can only say the advice provided has been very beneficial and I would highly recommend David should you need any commercial assistance within the construction industry. Highly professional individual.

Eamon Lynam, Director – Kylemore Services Limited

David recently provided advice on a contract dispute that we had with a Main Contractor. His input, knowledge and advice got us to a position where without his direction, we would not have been able to progress. David has gained valuable experience over the years, and I have no hesitation in recommending him and his services for those in the construction industry that may have issues of a contractual nature.

William Dalton, Commercial Director – LSG UK Limited

David has provided us with contractual and commercial advice on a recent extension of time and loss and expense claim. In doing so, David organised and coordinated the delay analysis, together with the quantum and written submissions. We have found his advice to be excellent and would have no hesitation in recommending him to any other subcontractors or law firms wishing to engage him as an expert witness.

Connor MacLeod, Director – EM Commercial Services Limited

David acted as our advisor and party presentative in three adjudications and subsequent settlement negotiations across various contracts with the same employer over a period of nearly eight months from start to finish. In this time David also worked with our legal team in successfully enforcing one of those decisions which was key to us reaching a settlement across all projects. David represented us in the following adjudications (1) a smash and grab (2) a wrongful termination claim and (3) our final account position following termination. His work was critical to us resolving our issues and we found David brilliant to work with from start to finish.
