Expert Witness

Paul Nathanail has presented expert witness evidence in several high profile cases involving contaminated land investigation and remediation. By closely following the guidelines for expert witnesses he has been able to provide fair and frank evidence relating to the quality and appropriateness of contaminated land investigation and remediation works undertaken. These cases have involved both criminal prosecutions and planning appeals as well as common law dispute. He has also provided solicitors and lawyers with guidance on the technical component of cases where expert witness testimony was ultimately not required.

He is backed by our highly specialised team who frequently carry out rapid tasks sometimes in the middle of court or inquiry proceedings as the need arises.

LQM are well placed to provide these services as we regularly provide training to all parts of the contaminated land community (ie regulators, consltants and problem holders) and peer reviews large numbers of 3rd party reports as well as authoring or contributing to key technical guidance relating to land contamination management.
