Expert Witness Services

Trident has benefitted many clients involved in legal challenges through its Expert Witness service.

Our reports can cover a wide range of property related disputes:

  • Construction quality and cost matters
  • Complex service charge disputes
  • Service charge allocation advice
  • Dilapidations
  • Party wall matters
  • Boundary disputes
  • Negligence cases.

Trident has supported submissions to many alternative dispute resolutions, including mediation and arbitration, presenting a strong case to achieve the best outcome. We are also experienced at presenting material in court.

However, we can offer you much more than expertise in building surveying. With decades of experience in this field, we can provide a comprehensive knowledge of relevant legislation, an understanding of the legal system, as well as benefitting from established links with major legal practices and specialist barristers’ chambers.

Trident has assisted in many cases in relation to submissions to alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration. In such cases the presentation of a strong case to the arbitrator can help in achieving a more favourable outcome.

It is our experience that practical and pragmatic advice to clients and their other professional advisors often leads to a more prompt and economic solution where, of course, the outcome of Court proceedings can never be certain. Our thorough understanding of the law and our expertise in building surveying makes Trident very well placed to help.
