Our acknowledged expertise means we often provide litigation support for mediation and court proceedings, and we routinely provide advice for claims and contract negotiations.
Our experts have received specialist training and act as independent or joint experts for defendants or claimants in court proceedings, during the mediation process or other processes such as adjudication and arbitration during the determination of contracts.
Apportioning responsibility for contaminated land liability can be complicated by land ownership and boundary changes, neighbouring contributions to contamination and natural phenomenon. So to support our litigation and expert witness services, we have a specialist team focussed on forensic analyses and reporting to assist where the question of ‘when’ and ‘who’ arises.
We have successfully employed techniques such as forensic organic chemistry analyses, fingerprinting and isotope analysis to age date and determine the origin of pollutants in soils and groundwater.
We believe we have the right people and the right expertise to help you through even the most problematic litigation processes.
