Expert Witness

Disputes are commonplace when it comes to property and at times, legal challenges have to be enacted to resolve a situation.

Strategy 2 MiniOur dedicated team of planners are available to appear as expert witnesses at inquiries, enforcement proceedings, judicial reviews and arbitration - on behalf of major developers and private individuals alike.


Many developers and individuals find themselves at odds with local authorities and are often forced to try and achieve resolution through appeals or public enquiries.

We've enjoyed a raft of successes in arguing for development plan and allocation changes in this way. NJL can also offer advice on all aspects of the appeal process and we've helped numerous developers to turn refusals around and get on with the important business of building.

Our team can prepare and give evidence in relation to a number of formal procedures, such as:

  • Planning appeals
  • Public inquiries
  • Listed Building appeals
  • Secretary of State call-in.
