Our Founder

Jiwan Thapar is one of Canada's most sought-after experts in the field of construction claims and dispute resolution. His broad experience has taken him from the concrete and dust of the construction site to senior positions at top tier engineering and construction firms. In 2013 he founded JTE, an engineering and management consulting company specializing in construction claims and dispute resolution. In his role as Managing Principal, Jiwan has contributed to the success of projects ranging from high rise condominiums to billion-dollar rapid transit systems and hydroelectric plants.

A recognized thought leader in his field, Jiwan is a strong believer in the concepts of knowledge sharing and giving back to the community. He holds teaching positions at both the University of Toronto and the Construction Institute of Canada. He is also a contributor to the prestigious Construction Law Letter. A vocal advocate for best construction management practices for mitigating and promptly resolving disputes, he is regularly called upon as a speaker and corporate trainer.

“It’s amazing what can be accomplished when nobody cares who gets the credit.”

Jiwan has a Master of Engineering from the University of Toronto and is currently pursuing a Master of Laws (LLM in Construction Law and Dispute Resolution). He is a member in good standing of Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO), Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering International (AACEI), and the Project Management Institute (PMI).

In his spare time, Jiwan enjoys playing with his beloved pups Mocha and Ladoo, challenging a squash opponent, or practicing yoga. He is a proud supporter of Mercy for Animals, a non-profit that works tirelessly towards the welfare of farm animals.
