Specialist medico-legal knowledge in:
Also able to report on general urology:
"Mr Muir was instructed as medico-legal expert in a high-profile, disputed High Court (Family Division) case in which I appeared. Mr Muir’s report was well-produced, clear, fully referenced and of outstanding quality. He understood well the parameters and obligations of giving expert evidence on disputed matters. He was also an impressive witness under cross-examination: confident, calm, unflappable, informative, experienced. His evidence was, in this case, accepted virtually in totality by the judge, who found Mr Muir’s expertise and credentials to be impressive, and treated his contribution to the case as substantial. Mr Muir made himself available in person for the trial in question, despite the considerable travelling distance involved. He has a thoroughly professional demeanour. His fees were fair and reasonable. I would unhesitatingly recommend Mr Muir as a medico-legal expert in any of the fields of his expertise."

"Mr Muir’s assistance throughout this difficult case has been invaluable. His report enabled us to maintain arguments with regards to quantum, which enabled us to obtain a substantial discount on the settlement, to reflect the litigation risk."
