We are often required to act as expert witnesses for litigation purposes, both in the UK and overseas. Cases range from patent infringements and project disputes between companies to litigation arising from international disasters. Our considerable experience in the field of failure analysis is invaluable for this work.

Our consultants act in a completely impartial way during their investigations and are experienced at giving evidence and defending their findings in court. We travel world wide to carry out investigations and to give evidence.

Independent Expert Witness Services and improvements to Access to Justice
The Civil Justice reforms implement recommendations made by the Rt Hon Lord Woolf, Master of the Rolls, in his reports on Access to Justice. As part of the reforms, new Civil Procedure Rules and practice directions have been published and came into force on 26th April 1999.

The Chancery Division is one of the three divisions of the High Court of Justice and aims to resolve disputes involving general civil work as well as specialist work in matters of companies, bankruptcy, trust and intellectual property.

The role of the independent Expert Witness continues to be of vital importance in dispute resolution. Neale Consulting Engineers Limited act as mechanical engineering expert witnesses particularly in the following areas:

  • Automotive (Cars, Lorries/Trucks, Motorcycles)
  • Aerospace
  • Manufacturing Industry
  • Marine
  • Paper
  • Power Generation
  • Oil & Gas
  • Rail and Public Transport.

We have acted as independent experts for nearly 40 years and are instructed as Single Joint Experts (SJE). Our independence ensures that our work is impartial and undertaken without bias irrespective of whichever side instructs us. As a Single Joint Expert our first duty is to the Court.
