When an individual or company needs to understand the value of a claim they’re bringing or defending, external financial expertise is essential. That’s where FRP’s expert witness service fits in.
Because we’re independent and generally conflict free, we can be instructed by either claimants or defendants in commercial litigation, international arbitration or mediation. We can act as party appointed expert or single joint expert or provide support in reaching a mediated settlement. We also have experience of giving evidence in the High Court.
We’ve worked across many industries on a wide range of disputes, including lost profits, breach of contract, wasted costs, professional negligence, business interruption, business expropriation, matrimonial and fraudulent misrepresentation.
When a case requires a particular area of technical expertise, we partner with external experts, such as competition economists in a cartel claim or financial services experts in a banking dispute. We can also draw on the expertise of our corporate finance team on contentious valuations. And we can tap into the Eight International network if country-specific expertise and an international physical presence are needed.
