Expert Witness

Unfortunately in the present economic climate, interpretations of the terms within a contract often differ, resulting in a dispute between the parties to the contract.

Differing standard forms of contract have been introduced over recent times in an attempt to mitigate such disputes.

Such contracts incorporate various options for resolving any disputes that may arise, known as ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution), these include Arbitration, Adjudication and Mediation.

Notwithstanding the above, disputes unfortunately still occur between parties to a construction contract and William Blake has acted as an expert witness in dealing with matters related to quantity and building surveying.

William has acted as both a single and joint expert witness, preparing expert witness reports and Scott Schedules to assist the Court in their decisions, in accordance with the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR).

Also when required, William has appeared in Court to substantiate his expert evidence under examination and cross-examination by the parties legal teams.
