Company Profile

Philip Collier, Andrew Knight and Stephen Watts established Collier Knight Watts in 2003 to offer a new and dynamic Expert Witness Service. The company was founded on the then 40 years combined experience of its three Partners who are all fully trained in the role of an Expert Witness and are widely recognised in this field.

Andrew Knight retired from the partnership in June 2006 following a serious road traffic accident so the company is now managed jointly by Philip and Stephen.

The Partners bring a wealth of specialist expertise in Civil and Mechanical Engineering. We provide authoritative and fully investigated reports, primarily for Civil and Criminal litigation, on subjects such as construction site and demolition accidents, structural surveys, lifting and access equipment failures, product failures and road traffic accidents. The Partnership also has particular expertise investigating occupational conditions such as Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome, Upper Limb Disorders and Noise Induced Hearing Loss and matters relating to Occupational Health and Safety.

With the preparation of over 3000 technical reports, the range of cases dealt with by the Partners is extensive. For example, reports are frequently prepared on personal injury caused by slips, trips and falls, accidents in the sports and leisure environment, manual handling, glass and glazing. The list of subject areas covered is considerable.

It is our aim always to provide a prompt, efficient and professional service to all our clients at all times.

The Partners of Collier Knight Watts invite you to telephone our strategically placed office and speak directly to an experienced engineer and importantly an experienced expert witness on any matter. Part of our service is to offer a free no obligation initial advice service and we invite you to telephone the partners to discuss any matter where you feel expert evidence may assist.

The partners undergo regular refresher training in expert witness work to ensure our services are up to date and abreast of current thinking.
