Disputes in international arbitration often involve the selection of experts.  This selection is affected by aspects such as the expert’s credentials and previous work, cultural aspects, and communication skills as well as whether the hearings will involve direct presentations or hot tubbing in addition to direct and cross examination, etc.  Other key aspects covered involve when to start involving experts, the importance of an effective support team of consulting experts, and what is expected in analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of the matter before and after filing.  Our panel of experienced attorneys will also explore the rules and procedures governing expert evidence and appointment rules of tribunal-appointed experts, which are common in civil law jurisdictions and many international arbitrations.
