Expert Witness
When claims and disputes cannot be settled, they are commonly resolved through adjudication, arbitration or litigation using an Expert Witness. Renowned for delivering with integrity and technical excellence, our team brings credibility and knowledge to a case as required, receiving instruction directly from clients, contractors, sub-contractors, insurers or from a solicitor acting on their behalf.

Expert Determination
We employ qualified and experienced Expert Determiners who are able to act as third party tribunal when appointed by professional bodies or other parties. When selected as an expert in a determination matter, our representatives are independent and act fairly and impartially to parties involved in the dispute.

We employ experienced Chartered Arbitrators who are able to act as third party tribunal when appointed by professional bodies or other parties. In addition, our highly trained professionals are able to offer varied national and international experience that ensures representations are presented to tribunals in the most effective way.

A team of qualified practicing adjudicators make impartial binding decisions when appointed to do so and provide advice to clients on industry payments procedures in order to avoid payment disputes to ensure relationships are maintained. Our knowledge of the respective security of payment processes and legislation in all Australasian jurisdictions enables us to assist the flow of money between contracting parties; this often resolves payment disputes before they escalate to arbitration or litigation.
