Firearms analysis is a complex matter and expert views can differ, making it wise to review the work of forensic providers or in-house police investigators working for the other side of a case, especially when considering scene-of-crime evidence.

Our specialists have undertaken work for numerous UK police forces and military branches, as well as the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) and the Health & Safety Executive (HSE). We can establish whether initial examinations and conclusions are scientifically robust and fit-for-purpose.
