Expert witness

Evidence for litigation and insurance claims on agricultural and rural land use matters

AK Consultants can assist with expert witness reports and the collection of evidence in disputes involving agricultural and related matters. This includes attendance at hearings and mediation sessions and conducting special studies designed to address specific concerns. An example of this was the provision of evidence relating to soil damage caused by major pipeline excavations and the on-going impacts on crop yields.

Insurance claims

Our general forestry and agricultural expertise allows us to determine the value of losses associated with agricultural activities, for example losses resulting from fires or flooding.

Mediation

AK Consultants can facilitate meetings and workshops for farmers and other organisations targeting the rural sector. David Armstrong and Astrid Ketelaar have undertaken mediation training with the Institute of Arbitrators and Mediators.
