Expert Witness

Rodney Hyman and his team have supported solicitors, multinational organisations and Australian nationals and national organisations for more than 25 years, providing advisory reports, expert valuation reports and detailed evidence in courts. They have also carried out hundreds of expert conferences.

One of the most challenging areas facing valuers is retrospective valuations where empirical evidence is difficult to source. I and my team specialise in this space and have developed procedures and protocols for dealing with this challenging area.

Pre-loss valuations are a specialty. I and my team have carried out retrospective pre-loss or pre-accident valuations including in one case a rural property with homestead, panel beating business, vintage cars and other assets amounting to more than 3,000 spreadsheet lines and more than 10,000 assets 5 years’ retrospectively. In other cases we have assessed assets as diverse as a Venetian Glass Chandelier, a 3 year old dark green Porsche with zero kilometres, a bucket wheel excavator in Indonesia and perhaps the most challenging, the entire gold mining camp and equipment stolen in the Central African Republic (following a coup).

Our experience in the Family Law jurisdiction is unequalled around Australia. Rodney is highly sought as a speaker at Family Law Conferences and has presented papers nationally as well as throughout the Asia-Pacific region on valuations within this specialised jurisdiction. Rodney has carried out dozens of training sessions to legal practices on this unique area of valuations. (Please ask if you would like to arrange a training session for your office.)
