Specialists in Assessments of Capacity

Since 2003 ECA has been dedicated to addressing evidentiary issues in the assessment of earning capacity across different areas of law. ECA not only connects people with specialised knowledge, we have a wealth of it ourselves.

ECA has a deep understanding of the law relevant to the assessment of earning capacity under modified common law, statutory and private contractual regimes, and of the role of the expert witness and expert evidence in the decision making process.

ECA works with consultants to ensure they understand the specific questions each individual decision maker needs answered, whilst maintaining their objectivity and independence.
