We can provide expert testimonies at oral hearings and other forums such as arbitrations, court cases etc. Oral hearings are generally called if the relevant authority (An Bord Pleanála) decides that project is of a complex and significant nature. The oral hearing is attended by both parties of the Appeal i.e. the Applicant (First Party) and the Appellant (Third Party).
Our success rate at oral hearings for roads and transport related issues is second to none. We understand that when making a submission it is not just what we say but how we say it and how it is presented that is important.
Making presentations at oral hearings requires leadership, good judgement and an ability to think quickly especially when being cross-examined.
Our in depth knowledge of roads design, traffic engineering and transportation planning aligned with our experience of the planning process, has contributed to our reputation as the leading traffic consultancy firm for expert testimonies.
