What this session will cover

Experts have been described as “simply vehicles by which the parties reargue the facts”. Is this right? What is the status of an expert witness in the modern disputes world? Are they independent, what are their duties, and where can conflicts arise? Our panel will discuss the issues arising from the use of experts in litigation and arbitration today. Speakers: Lynne McCafferty QC, 4 Pump Court; Ben Giaretta, Fox Williams LLP (moderator); Adam Constable QC, Keating Chambers; Don Harvey, Secretariat; Todd Wetmore, Three Crowns LLP.
