Witness Familiarisation

The Bond Solon Difference

Bond Solon provides training, support and guidance on a global basis for anyone facing the prospect of being cross-examined or questioned in any type of legal forum, regulatory hearing, meeting or interview. Giving evidence can be a daunting experience and should a witness not perform well, then the consequences can be far-reaching. 

For over 30 years Bond Solon has provided witnesses with essential support and guidance prior to giving evidence. Our services are designed for both factual and expert witnesses, whether they have given evidence numerous times or are giving evidence for the first time.

We believe no witness should be disadvantaged by not understanding the process, or be taken by surprise when they give evidence. Our training sessions address these potential pitfalls head-on, equipping witnesses with the understanding, skills and confidence needed so that they can  navigate the process successfully, helping mitigate risk and achieve the best possible outcome.

What we do


Giving evidence can be a daunting, unfamiliar and uncomfortable experience. Most witnesses have never seen the inside of a courtroom, yet they can be required to attend a hearing and be cross-examined without always understanding fully what is required of them. They need to know how to prepare and how to give clear, helpful and honest testimony.

Our training provides witnesses with a comprehensive understanding of the theory, practice and procedure of giving evidence, and what is expected of them throughout the hearing stage of a case.
