“I’m excited to join the team at HKA in Canada and work with my new colleagues across the business to assist clients with forensic accounting and commercial litigation matters,” Shull said.

Headquartered in London, UK, HKA provides consulting in risk mitigation, dispute resolution, expert witness, and litigation support primarily to clients in the construction sector. The firm has more than 1,000 professionals across 45+ offices in 17 countries.

HKA has Canadian offices in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, and Vancouver.

The firm earlier this year promoted Nader Akkaoui and Charles Bucci to partners in its Montreal office.
