Nathan Choudhury, one of our senior associates, has contributed an article to Thomson Reuters Practical Law.  The article explores the use of tribunal appointed damages experts and considers whether other solutions exist to improve the quantum process in international arbitration.

Research indicates that it is rare for tribunals to appoint their own damages experts, and in Haberman Ilett’s own experience, out of around 500 cases that our partners have been involved in, only four have involved tribunal-appointed experts.

Nathan touches on the reasons why tribunals appoint their own experts, for example to help them better understand the differences in opinion between two experts, and he also explores alternatives to appointing tribunal experts.

Nathan’s article, titled “Tribunal-appointed damages experts: Procedural improvements can serve as a better alternative in arbitration” is available in full here.
