Who we are

The cornerstone of our business is the quality of our people and the experience, professional diversity and outlooks that they offer. Our teams include experts regarded as among the best in the world in their fields.

They are specialists who understand their industry’s structure and idiosyncrasies every bit as much as the standards and practices that underpin it.

Alongside them are those we have attracted to the sector from other walks of life – government, academia and science – as well as colleagues who offer insight from Ricardo’s work in areas such as motorsport, environmental regulation and clean energy generation.

Binding us together is a shared value of being free to offer trusted expertise. We’re a natural home for professionals who want to see things done properly – who believe it is their responsibility to anticipate problems and deliver tangible results.
