Who does Foresight work for?
We work for solicitors, the Crown Prosecution Service, barristers and private clients. Our experts are totally impartial, as you would expect, no matter who instructs them.
Our experts are drawn from all over the UK, allowing Foresight to provide not only the best expert for your case but one who does not need to travel the length of the UK.
Our solicitor clients are based across the UK - from the south west to the north east and everywhere in between.
We pride ourselves on delivering a fast and effective response to all expert witness requirements. Our experts can file reports between two to four weeks from formal instruction. On occasion, we have turned around reports within 24 hours.
We aim to send you a quote and details of an appropriate expert/s within 24 hours.
We are specialists in providing experts for solicitors at very short notice, even as they are on the court steps.
We will always work within your timescales, so assessments will be carried out and reports sent to you within the time you require them.
Our experts work across a broad range of disciplines, including psychology, psychiatry, medicine, forensic IT and forensic accountancy. We also have experts in general practice, paediatrics, toxicology, forensic medicine, forensic science, veterinary science and handwriting. However, this list is not exhaustive as we can find an expert in any discipline for your case.
Our Account Managers are skilled in assessing each case to determine the type of expert/s required and will guide you in making a decision. As we provide thousands of reports each year, we’re highly experienced in a variety of cases, including those similar to your own.
No matter the case or discipline, our experienced Account Managers are capable of managing multiple reports and will source all the necessary experts for your case.
Always. All of our experts are experienced in giving evidence in court, and all have a wealth of experience in doing so. We adhere to a robust vetting procedure to ensure that all of our experts are leaders in their field and have appropriate experience in assessments and reports for court proceedings.
We have a number of experts for whom immigration is their area of expertise and all of them are familiar with the Istanbul Protocol 2004.
All of our Psychiatry Experts are Section 12 qualified.
Call us on 03300 889 000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to source a suitable expert for your case.
When we receive your enquiry, we aim to respond within 24 hours with a quote and suitable experts. When you have chosen your expert and sent through a purchase order, we will instruct the expert for your case, making a note of your timescales. You will need to send through any relevant paperwork for the case. Our Account Managers are here to keep you informed and will guide you throughout the process.
If at any stage you need further information or assistance, our Account Managers are on hand to answer any questions.
After briefing an Account Manager, and upon receipt of a signed purchase order, we will instruct the relevant expert/s.
Most clients generally use BACS but we also accept cheques. We do not accept credit cards.
You do not generally need to be present when the expert/s carries out their assessment, but on certain matters a third party might be required to attend. We will organise all travel and appointments and ensure that the expert is aware of what is expected of them.
Assessments of clients who are not incarcerated can take place at a number of locations including solicitor’s offices, home visits or local healthcare centres.
We use the Criminal Justice Secure eMail service in order to receive and send sensitive data in a secure way. Foresight is also registered with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) under the registration reference ZA105571.
We will liaise with you at every step of the process to ensure that you are fully informed at all stages. Once the expert has completed the report we will then proofread it and send it over to you.
