Expert evidence is a much-discussed subject in UK legal and construction media. There has been a steady flow of cases where Judges have publicly criticised the conduct of Expert Witnesses and their failure to adhere to their duty . Indeed, an expert’s conduct can result in an adverse costs order being awarded against their own client. This clearly damages the client’s reputation, as well as their case.
