Expert Services Profile
Charlie Woodley advises at the interface of commercial management, claims or dispute resolution and data. He has over 20 years’ industry experience and is an established construction informatics specialist with a track record in harnessing technology to resolve analytical problems on complex projects, programmes or disputes.
Charlie provides a range of pro-active services intended to inform digitalisation strategy and implementation and to help organisations manage, analyse and extract value from project data.
He supports clients facing the challenges of timeously aggregating and structuring records to evidence or rebut claims for time or money. The ability to piece together evidence from disparate sources reduces the need for global claims and improves the prospects of commercial settlement or dispute outcomes.
Charlie has been appointed analytics expert witness in international arbitration and provided specialist expert assistance in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) proceedings and litigation. His services significantly reduce time and cost by expediting the collection, processing and extraction of relevant data. Quality and outcomes are improved by increasing the time and resource available for analysis and reporting.
