Brand refresh for group and subsidiaries makes clear industry statement



LONDON, UK, 26 September 2019 — One of the world’s leading specialists in the field of expert services has consolidated its operations under a new brand identity. Blackrock Expert Services, together with group subsidiaries IT Group, Haberman Ilett, and Martello Financial Services, has restructured to create a new global brand, Blackrock Expert Services Group, headquartered at the Grade II-listed Adelphi building by the Strand in London, England, UK.

Collectively, the Group’s service proposition is unique – a range of expert witness, dispute resolution, advisory and investigative services that span global industries across the world’s continents.​

Earlier this year Blackrock Expert Services merged with Haberman Ilett, one of the UK’s foremost firms specialising in the provision of accounting, financial and valuation expertise in the context of disputes, and launched a new subsidiary for the financial services sector, Martello Financial Services. In August 2018, the company joined forces with IT Group, a leading provider of professional services for IT disputes and digital forensic investigations. 

Now with over 160 professionals based throughout the UK, Europe and the Middle East, Blackrock Expert Services Group provides its clients, partners and stakeholders with seamless access to the world’s most highly regarded and respected construction and engineering, delay and quantum, financial services, forensic accounting and valuation, and information technology experts.

Commenting on the announcement, Chairman and founder David Barry said: “The launch of our new refreshed brand represents another exciting chapter in our history and comes as we celebrate 10 years since the establishment of Blackrock Expert Services as an award-winning, boutique consulting practice.

“As we expand our service offering to include accounting, financial services and technology skills and expertise, now is the right time to unveil a new look that signifies our values of professionalism, attention to detail, independence and integrity.”

Giles Derry, Chief Executive Officer, added: “Our new brand reflects our vision to be the most highly regarded expert services company in the world, providing clarity, insight and focus beyond dispute for our clients. These are truly exciting times for our business.”

Instructed by the world’s leading law firms and barristers’ chambers, the firm’s experts have advised on high-profile and complex projects throughout the Americas, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia and Oceania. In recent years, the Group has won a series of eminent industry awards, including Who’s Who Legal’s Expert Witness of the Year for both Construction and Arbitration (for the fifth consecutive year), and the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category for its outstanding sales growth in overseas markets.

Blackrock Expert Services Group’s client base includes international contractors, government agencies, blue chip multinationals, investors, developers and insurers.
