Counsel , Head of Claim Management
William Baxter trained as a quantity surveyor under the auspices of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, graduating in 1974 and becoming a fellow in 1989. Very early in his career he left traditional building to engage in all aspects of heavy engineering, power generation, petrochemical and pharmaceutical projects. In the UK during 1980s, there was an economic downturn resulting in a lack of major construction activities.
The market became so competitive that contracts were being taken on negative margins and as a result the embryonic claims profession grew rapidly . In 1995 Baxter was appointed as a commercial director of a leading mechanical electrical UK contractor mainly engaged in projects in the UK and also in Europe. From this developed the need for closer integration of claims management and legal services which in turn lead to the consultancy services offered today.
Almost all of these services have been performed in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Central America, including Oman. The recent appointment of Baxter at Hamad Al Sharji, Peter Mansour& Co. in Sept 2014, is an opportunity for maximizing the development of contracts and claims management services with the combined benefits of integrating the respective skill sets to the benefits of our clients .
