Accredited Expert Witness and Consultancy ( last updated May 2018 )
Peter Pallett is a recognised consultant specialising in the specific areas of temporary works covered by scaffolding, falsework and formwork. Self employed since 1991, his broad and practical experience can be of benefit to consultants, contractors and suppliers in providing independent impartial authoritative advice.
In 2010 he was a founder sponsor of the Temporary Works Forum (TWf). the recognised forum for temporary works in the United Kingdom.
Accredited Expert Witness
Peter's extensive course involved preparing and submitting two full expert witness reports, one day cross examination in court, a video-ed examination as an Expert Witness in court on a submitted relevant case, concluding with a Cardiff University examination based on the Civil Procedures.
Understandably, Peter is now regularly consulted as an expert witness in litigation involving temporary works; he has provided expert opinions and represented clients on matters related to temporary works in England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland and Gibraltar.
In January 1998 he was accepted by the Law Society for inclusion in their Directory of Expert Witnesses, and in May 1999 was accepted as a Single Joint Expert under the 1998 Woolf Report changes to the Civil Procedures. In August 2000 he was accepted as a registered expert witness in his fields with The Institution of Civil Engineers, until on 17th May 2018 when his Institution decided to discontinue holding a register! In December 2011 he entered the Expert Witness Directory.
Peter Pallett regrets, due to the financial limits of his professional indemnity insurance, he is unable to carry out checks and sign authorisation certificates (for example a Highways Agency Clause 8A check) for temporary works.
