About us

Parachuting Expert Witness – In all developed systems of law, the evidence of expert witnesses can be crucial to the outcome of a dispute. Nowhere is this more so than in the United Kingdom, where expert evidence has been adduced in court cases since at least the 15th century. Nowadays it may be required in both civil and criminal proceedings, as well as in arbitrations, before specialist tribunals and for public or parliamentary inquiries. We have assisted the courts in criminal and civil cases involving parachuting, both civilian and military.

 


Preliminary report – We normally get approached to write a preliminary report. At this early stage, this will be for the sole use of the client and his legal advisers. Opinions expressed in such a report may well determine whether the case proceeds. For that reason, we base it on as thorough an assessment of the available evidence so we are capable of stating our views as fully and frankly as possible. It may be that this is as far as the dispute gets taken. However, if it is decided to proceed with the case, the action will thereafter progress through certain well-defined stages.
