Within the practice, we have General Practice and Building Surveyors recognised within the legal community as experienced and effective expert witnesses on a variety of disputes relating to property matters.
With the introduction of the Woolf Reforms in the late 1990s, there has been an emphasis on obtaining specialist expert advice at an early stage in any potential dispute, and a move towards appointing single joint experts to save cost and time.
