Expert Witness

Expert Witness

Gerry Poole accepts instructions from solicitors acting on behalf of clients in litigation disputes. He will also accept instructions to act as Single Joint Expert for both parties where this is agreed by the parties or directed by the Court.

When accepting instructions as an expert witness, surveyors must act in an open and transparent manner and use their professional knowledge and experience to narrow the issues in contention.  If they cannot agree with the other party’s expert, or their respective clients refuse to settle the claim based on their advice, the surveyors may be required to support their position under cross-examination to assist the Court in reaching its judgement.

Gerry Poole has undertaken numerous expert witness instructions in construction related disputes, property disrepair and boundary disputes. He now specialises in party wall related matters, calling upon over 30 years of experience in administering party wall legislation.
