Expert testimony is a necessary part of many arbitrations that involve technical subject matter or complex economics and accounting. Parties and their advocates may push their experts to extremes in support of their positions. When this occurs, it can be difficult for the arbitrator to resolve the matter because the experts have not given the arbitrator sufficient or adequate information – or even the correct information – on which to base an appropriate award.      

This recorded webinar explores tools and techniques that arbitrators can use to ensure that the presented expert opinion evidence is useful and find the common ground in seemingly irreconcilable expert testimony.  Areas covered include:

  • recognizing when expert testimony will be relevant;
  • raising the issue of expert testimony with parties and counsel;
  • managing the exchange of expert reports;
  • presentation of expert testimony (timing, method, etc.);
  • roles of the panel chair and wing arbitrators during presentation;
  • tools and techniques for finding common ground;
  • bridging seemingly irreconcilable expert testimony gaps; and more.
