Independent Expert Reports

For more than 30 years, Trevor Vella has been involved in Family Law related matters preparing independent expert reports and often critiquing the reports of other experts.

Trevor’s experience has involved work in the following capacities.

‘Shadow’ Expert

When appointed by one party as a Shadow Expert, Trevor’s role is to advise. report and review/critique the report of the Single Joint Expert.

Obtaining the advice of a Shadow Expert is often hugely beneficial in understanding complex matters where the Shadow Expert does not agree with the value given by the Single Joint Expert.

Generally, the appointment of a forensic expert by one party can be critical in better understanding property valuation in Family Law proceedings and obtaining a favourable property settlement.

Single Joint Expert

Where both parties wish to jointly appoint an expert and agree to appointing Trevor Vella & Co, Trevor will require a letter of instruction clearly outlining the scope of the report.

Valuation may cover the entire asset pool of the parties or it may focus on particular assets or liabilities which do not have an easily ascertainable value.

In all property valuation investigations, Single Joint Experts have a duty to be independent and impartial. This objectivity can be crucial in helping parties come to an agreement as to value.
