Expert Evidence

Our Managing Director, Gary Shiels, and our Director, George Karavanas, are our most experienced and qualified planners and therefore the ones who normally provide expert evidence in the Land and Environment Court.

In particular, our Managing Director has been a court appointed expert on more than twenty-five separate occasions and provided expert evidence on behalf of a developer or Council over the past 30 years on more occasions than can be recalled. A list of matters that our Managing Director and Director have been involved in over the past few years are included below.
