Land and Environment Court

Ecological expert witness services for land, planning and environment courts

Biodiversity Assessment and Management Pty Ltd as a service-focused consultancy consistently provide the highest possible standard of technical advice and reporting in all aspects of our ecological expert witness advice to contested legal matters.

Specialist Technical Reports

BAAM carries out studies and prepares specialist technical reports relied on by our expert witnesses in court matters.

These can range from reporting on a single site inspection to complex reporting of many weeks of detailed field survey. In particular, it is not simply the ability to accurately list species presence or absence that represents our strength, it is our ability to interpret results, define the relevance of results to legislation and determine the implications for relevant matters and grounds of an appeal.

BAAM’s technical reports are always of rigorous scientific content and are noted to be clear, concise and relevant to the issue before the court.

Our expertise and experience allows us to:

  1. Identify the technical issues and grounds of relevance to the contested matter;
  2. Frame investigations that are time and cost effective to meet individual case requirements; and
  3. Address any technical deficiencies/problems relevant to each case in an efficient and timely manner.

Joint Expert Reports

BAAM’s ecological expert witness specialists have participated in numerous expert meetings and produced subsequent joint reports which detail where areas of agreement have been achieved and clearly stipulate the details and issues of areas of disagreement.

The clear identification of disagreement and relevance of the issues before the court allows our experts to then focus on the areas of disagreement to inform the mediation process (where relevant) and the expert’s evidence where required. Contact Us today for further information.

Participation in the mediation process

BAAM’s ecological expert witness specialists participate fully in the mediation process, understanding that the role of mediation is to identify issues, examine options and alternatives, and endeavour to reach agreement.
