Expert Witness

When expert evidence is called for in a court of law, a tribunal or arbitration, it’s time to call in the expert witness.

When there is no intention to place an expert’s opinion before a court, a tribunal or arbitration that person is referred to as an expert advisor and may take on a number of behind-the-scenes roles.

A court of law is a place where a fact is not a fact until it is proved or in certain cases, disproved by incontrovertible evidence. Here, the role of the expert witness becomes paramount. Often, the evidence put forward in a trial by an expert witness can be a deciding factor in tipping the balance in favour of a well-informed, reliable and well-considered judgment.

When in court, the expert witness methodically presents opinion evidence based on evidence of fact. The subsequent report, which the expert witness also prepares, is written within a specified timescale in compliance with specific legal guidelines.

Fundamentally, the role of the expert witness is to provide technical analysis and opinion which will assist the court in reaching its decision. The opinion evidence put forward by the expert witness is based on evidence of fact.
