Compulsory Purchase and Compensation

Expert Witness - You Thought Not Being Paid Was A Problem

The Impact of Liverpool Victoria Insurance Co Ltd v Zafar

The consequences for an expert witness who deliberately or recklessly makes false statements can be severe. The risk is demonstrated by this case. The expert’s primary duty is to the court, whether in written or oral evidence. But closer examination of the case invites questions as to how an expert might legitimately change an opinion, from appointment to final submission. How must experts arrive at the final report and how should they document their processes?

International Summit: Delivering Land Assembly - UK Dilemmas, Global Solutions

Every country has unique challenges in the modern world. The successful delivery of housing, modern services and infrastructure, regenerating city and town centres, as well as business communities, all are common ambitions and in every case, the acquisition of land and rights are the vital ingredients. Each country and each scheme also has a unique set of dilemmas with the potential to frustrate and disable and whilst no one country has the magic ingredients to overcome such obstacles, we can learn and potentially find solutions from the global market place. The key is to understand what solutions work in different jurisdictions and then consider whether the solutions can be readily applied elsewhere. This is how best practice evolves and matures and this event will focus on this worldwide. It will unquestionably be of value for practitioners wherever they might be based.
