Unfortunately disputes are an inherent part of life and business. Parties in dispute often need an expert witness to provide an objective opinion. Given the stakes involved, your dispute deserves an expert who has broad commercial experience and excellent communication skills.
When appointing an expert you may want to consider:
- Experience – being an expert on the matter at hand is more important than “being an expert at being an expert”;
- Qualifications – academic or professional qualifications may not necessarily be as relevant as expertise and experience, particularly in valuation, assessment of loss and securities law related matters;
- Impartiality – an expert will be most valuable if they are truly impartial. Sometimes this means the assessment of financial loss may be higher or lower than anticipated. Identifying this early in the litigation process is best;
- Timing – our experts can generally provide greater value if appointed early. Often an early indication of the valuation or financial loss suffered can have a significant bearing on litigation strategy;
- Briefing – the initial briefing is critical. Being provided an insufficient briefing may undermine the assumptions and ultimate conclusion reached.
Your dispute deserves a genuine expert withness. We have a panel of professionals who have been carefully selected to provide expert evidence on specific areas:
