You are invited to attend the following seminar focussed on party appointed experts as discussed and examined by distinguished speakers. As with domestic litigation, the use of party appointed experts in international arbitration is widespread. Their use comes at a significant cost, and brings the challenge of the maintenance of their independence and their cost-effective deployment in the proceedings. Doug Jones will discuss developing international best practice regarding case management techniques designed to maximise the value to the parties and Tribunals of party appointed experts. The seminar will follow an interactive Q & A session and networking drinks.
