Hawkins Goes International

Hawkins is excited to announce that it has opened its first International Office, located in Dubai. 

Dr Chris Wareham, the Middle East Director, will field instructions throughout the United Arab Emirates and surrounding territories.

Our Managing Director, Andrew Moncrieff, says… “This is an exciting time for Hawkins. We have helped many clients investigate claims in the Middle East in the past and this new venture allows us to service their needs better, both in the UAE and beyond. We are looking forward to cementing the relationships we have with existing clients and forging new ones in the future. Chris is a very experienced investigator who will be supported from the UK by a small, fixed team of experts who specialise in a diverse range of international losses.”

Chris was previously the Regional Manager of our Glasgow Office. He has extensive experience in the investigation of fires in structures, vehicles, plant/machinery and losses in the marine environment.
