Expert witness

The directors of AG&G are trusted as expert witnesses by courts, tribunals and arbitrators because they are acknowledged leaders in the licensed leisure industry. David Gooderham and Anthony Alder are also accredited arbitrators and independent experts.

We have the confidence and insight to justify a complicated argument under cross-examination and have helped to make case law, perhaps most notably in Luminar Leisure vs Apostole. In this case, we gave expert evidence on behalf of the tenant, Luminar, to show that the landlord was unreasonable in withholding consent to assignment of the lease and change of use of the premises. The result was a landmark ruling in favour of our client.

On another occasion, we convinced a judge that Heston Blumenthal was a sound enough character to be assigned the lease of his gastropub in Bray, The Hind’s Head.

AG&G act for owners, landlords, tenants and lessees, both in and out of court, working to clients or their legal representatives to ensure a just, equitable resolution.
