What is an Expert Witness?

An expert witness is an individual who by virtue of his profession, skill or training, is believed to possess specialised knowledge in a certain field. Expert witnesses are widely relied on in court to give evidence based on their expertise in a certain area. Experts may be required in a range of cases and in different forums, giving evidence in courts or tribunal, arbitration, adjudication and mediation. As expert witness, we must:-

  • Be seen to be unbiased;
  • Provide evidence within our expertise, experience and knowledge;
  • State main facts and assumptions and not to omit material facts that might be relevant to our conclusions;
  • Be impartial and uninfluenced by those instructing us to provide the evidence.

In some situations we may also act as a Single Joint Expert.
