Quantum in volatile times: Challenges faced by experts, counsel, and arbitrators, and strategies to cope

18 May
16:00 - 17:00

This panel will discuss damages issues in increasingly volatile times. The Covid-19 pandemic, war in Ukraine, high inflation and ongoing geopolitical and economic uncertainties have created new challenges for damages analyses. Loss assessments are at risk of becoming more polarised, with less common ground between experts and arbitrators being left to resolve fundamental divergences. Speculative claims can blur the lines between factual and expert issues and test the limits of expert evidence.

Noel Matthews (FTI Consulting) will moderate a discussion of these challenges, points to consider, and strategies that can be deployed, with perspectives from:

  • an expert (Tim Battrick, FTI Consulting)
  • a barrister (Judy Fu, 3 Verulam Buildings)
  • a barrister and arbitrator (Timothy Howe KC, Fountain Court)
  • a law firm partner (Lucinda Orr, Enyo)

Registration is from 15:30, with the event beginning at 16:00. 
Networking drinks & canapes will follow the conclusion of the event at 17:00.
