We offer expert witness services in the water, wastewater and organic waste sectors. Aqua Enviro can help provide expertise on the circumstances, evidence, facts or experiences to assist in legal cases and investigations.
We specialise in dispute resolution and have experience of presenting evidence and cross examination at: public inquiries, adjudications, mediations, civil and criminal courts.
We have represented local authorities, water companies, consultants and contractors in cases involving Environment Agency prosecutions, Professional Indemnity Claims and Civil Proceedings. Whereas the majority of cases are settled without the need for Court Proceedings, Aqua Enviro have acted for clients in court cases ranging from 3 days to 10 weeks duration and have given evidence under cross examination lasting from a few hours up to 2 days.
Over the past fifteen years Aqua Enviro has been involved in claims with a value of more than £160m, including the successful defence of a £28m claim involving a ten week trial at the Royal Court of Justice.
Case studies and references are available on request.

”The Aqua Enviro event on sludge dewatering had well chaired sessions and an agenda that addressed all the key issues with experienced and informed speakers. The venue was good and the lunch one of the nicest (and healthiest) I’ve had at any seminar event. Well worth the travel to attend. Excellent value.”

“The Customer service was excellent. There were some problems with samples not coming back from the lab. Immediately Kate offered to do all the analysis again and in fact I changed which samples were needed and got some extra data all for the same price.”
