A company was prosecuted for causing an environmental catastrophe. The court hearing process had begun and the prosecution’s case had already been heard. The defendant recommended to its lawyers that they engage a forensic engineer to assist in the sourcing and co-ordination of technical specialists, as well as providing expert testimony where appropriate. The lawyers engaged Andrew McGregor who provided the technical co-ordination required as well as some of the forensic expert testimony. Andrew became the lead technical expert. The process was successful and the defendant was acquitted.
