Founded in the 1960s by Geoffrey Hunt with an initial focus on mechanical and electrical engineering and personal injury claims, Geoffrey Hunt & Partners LLP has steadily expanded its areas of work. We now offer expertise in all manner of technical investigations including fire origin and cause investigation, explosion investigation, mechanical engineering and materials failures, electrical and electronic engineering faults and failures including electric shock and electrocution, transport claims, road traffic accident investigations, personal injury claims, fire protection engineering and associated building defects.

All of our investigators have a formal graduate level qualification with a number holding additional post-graduate qualifications and professional certifications. Disciplines include mechanical engineering, materials science, manufacturing, electrical and electronic engineering, fire engineering, building engineering, forensic science and engineering, and chemistry.

We investigate everything from small domestic losses to large multi-million pound commercial claims. We are particularly experienced in large losses, contractors’ liability and product liability, and have acquired specialist expertise in fire claims originating from 'white goods'.
