I am highly experienced in the field of Expert Witness reporting. This is a specialist field where Expert reports and representation are required in the process or anticipation of legal proceedings. Such reports are prepared in accordance with Part 35 of the Civil Procedure Rules 1998 and its Practice Direction or Part 25 of the Family Procedure Rules 2010 and its Practice Direction for matrimonial and related cases and Surveyors Acting as Expert Witnesses (RICS Practice Statement and Guidance Note) 4th Edition.
Where valuation opinions are included in these reports they are prepared and reported in accordance with the RICS Valuation- Global Standards (the Red Book) requirements and procedures.
Private clients, as opposed to lawyers and other professionals who are familiar with the protocols, need to be advised of the role of the expert witness and his/her primary duty in reporting to the court or other tribunal.
I have produced very many expert reports across a wide range of residential property related matters. I have given oral evidence in County Court and High Court proceedings.
Expert representation is normally charged on an hourly rate.
