Expert Witness

In an increasingly litigious world, engineers are frequently called upon to assist courts and other judicial bodies to resolve disputes. This assistance can range from an informal review of documentation through to the production of an expert witness report compliant with civil procedure rules. More recently, this has been extended to the provision of a single joint expert report.

Clancy directors and senior staff are extensively consulted as expert witness by property owners, solicitors and insurance companies, in claims arising from building accidents, personal injury and allegations of defective construction to deficient counsel from advisors, tree root trespass and matters of professional indemnity insurance.
