Expert Witnesses Directory - join today

APIL is the largest organisation for personal injury lawyers in the UK. Our expert witnesses and services directory is designed to speed up the litigation process by providing APIL members with suitably qualified experts to assist with their cases.

The directory is available to members online, in print through the APIL Expert and Rehabilitation Services Directory and as a bespoke personal service via our helpful, friendly staff in the Nottingham office.
