Expert Testimony

Synergies’ ability to authoritatively enable non-technical audiences to understand complex technical issues has resulted in our senior staff regularly appearing as expert witnesses.

We have provided expert advice on a range of issues including price and non-price disputes, competition, third party access, and valuation.

Please see below for examples of our work for Herbert Smith Freehills, Corrs Chambers Westgarth, and the Department of Transport, South Australia.
