Within the UK legal system there is the ability for the Court to appoint experts in a specific discipline to assist the court in coming to a decision.

The experts operate under Civil Prodedures Rules (CPR 35)  and  a Code of Practice known as Practice Direction 35 (PD35).

Simon has acted for Clients in food safety matters as a "Health and Hygiene Expert."

The key role of an expert witness is to be Independent in the matter in hand,
- to have good working knowledge of the issues and case in hand (in fact expert),
- and to understand his/ her duties in relation to the court procedures.
