Established in 1995, Vocat International is widely recognised as one of the UK's leading employment expert witness businesses.

We produce comprehensive employment reports for courts and tribunals, of a quality second to none.

Our reports are used mainly in cases of personal injury and clinical negligence, but extend also to cases of discrimination, miscarriage of justice and professional negligence.


Historically our casework distribution has been in a ratio of 48% Claimant instruction to 52% Defendant instruction. Since the changes in Civil Procedure Rules, about 30% of our instructions have been on a Single Joint Expert basis.

We apply the same high quality standard to all of our work, whether it be for small or large cases. Our largest case to date involved an award of £23m.

Types of Report

The majority of reports requested of us are those to be disclosed as full expert witness reports, but we can also provide pre-proceeding reports to review case study papers and provide early assesement of employment and loss of earning issues, or to comment on existing employment evidence.

Our Reputation

Most of our business comes from repeat instructions, or through recommendations between solicitors and/or barristers.

Whoever instructs or pays us, however, our overriding duty is to the Court. We comply with that duty.

A recent letter received of a Claimant following settlement of the case, regarding our employment report (which had been completed on the instruction of the Defendant), sums up our ability to provide a quality product to the Court that both sides can find acceptable. It stated: "I read your report and found it very fair".

VOCAT International Ltd is registered under the Data Protection Act 1998.
