The Hon. Mr Justice Gilbart holds a special place in my career. While he was still a planning barrister, I was an expert witness for him on a case involving land contamination.
He worked all his experts hard, expected detailed, meticulous evidence and supported us while we prepared for and gave oral evidence.
He took time to explain the procedures and the significance of events as the appeal proceeded.
It was a privilege to gain my first experience as an expert witness under his direction.
