The majority of our work is in respect of civil disputes, but reports are sometimes prepared in respect of criminal matters.
Environmental Expert Witness
David Gregson is a Chartered Environmentalist. In December 2008 he was admitted as one of the first accredited Expert Environmental Witnesses in the United Kingdom.
The qualification, which is a joint innovation between The Society For The Environment and The Academy of Experts, indicates that Mr. Gregson is able to act as an Expert Witness on environmental disputes requiring forensic investigation and analysis.
This is a developing area of law and commerce where it is envisaged the services of Expert Witnesses will become more common in the future.
Fees for work of this kind are quoted on an hourly rate, currently £140.00 per hour plus v.a.t.
Because an Expert Witness must be impartial it is not possible to accept work which is conditional on success of the claim.
