OEE scientists have provided environmental expert witness services on civil claims and criminal prosecutions particularly in relation to environmental impacts arising from pollution incidents and historically contaminated land.

We are experienced in the provision of expert advice on cases relating to the pollution of controlled waters by substances including petroleum hydrocarbons, animal slurry, surfactants and solvents. We have provided expert evidence on causation of pollution incidents which can include environmental forensic assessment and commissioning of materials forensic assessments.
