Expert Witness


We have provided advice and evidence in thousands of asbestos related disease cases.

We help legal professionals and the courts to understand how and when asbestos was used and the associated risks.

Our role is to advise those involved in litigation and the courts. We can help you to understand:

  • Whether or not particular materials are likely to have contained asbestos and the likely asbestos type
  • What was know known about the risks associated with asbestos, by whom and when
  • The likely extent of exposures to asbestos that may have occurred by comparison to relevant occupational hygiene standards/limits and/or in the context of cumulative exposure (for example for comparison to the Helsinki Criteria)
  • The relative proportions of asbestos dust likely to have been inhaled by a person in different circumstances (apportionment)
  • Whether or not any actions taken by duty holders were consistent with the knowledge and standards of the day

If you have a current case that you would like to discuss with one of our experts, please contact Laura Hooper and she will find the best fit amongst our team.
