I have been involved in forensic or litigation support services for over 20 years. In essence it has been a support service to firms of solicitors who require independent expert advice and opinion concerning their clients' cases. Overriding that is a duty to the court to give impartial opinions.

In this field it is important to have had a good deal of all round practical experience rather than to have spent all of one's time writing reports.

Typical assignments have been advising on and preparing reports in respect of:

  • commercial disputes
  • breach of contract or warranty
  • business interruption (loss of profits)
  • valuation disputes
  • personal injury or fatal accident
  • matrimonial disputes
  • professional negligence
  • directors' disqualification.

I am happy to attend court and give evidence where required. Most experts agree that it should never get that far and a well thought out and written report will go a long way towards avoiding it or at least reducing the time required and cost of attending court.
