Top tips for being a more effective witness in civil proceedings

18 May 2015

We have created this short film about our top 10 tips of what to bear in mind when being a witness of fact in civil proceedings.

Some witnesses are already familiar with what is involved, in which case our 10 tips serve as a useful reminder; for others the process is entirely new and the film will address some of the questions and concerns they may have. 

We hope that our film helps you assist your clients and witnesses to prepare for their appearance in Court. A detailed note on being a witness in civil proceedings can be found here. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss any aspect of being a witness, please call 020 7242 2523 to speak to a member of our Practice Management Team.
