The newsletter of GBRW Expert Witness
Welcome to the August edition of Expertise, the first edition of our new quarterly publishing schedule.
It’s been fairly challenging to meet this month’s deadline because of the high level of approaches and engagements over the past two months. We usually experience a seasonal “spike” each summer and organise ourselves to respond to enquiries as quickly as possible. However, this year seems to have been particularly busy, even though our record hot summer has slowed the general pace of business life in London!
In this edition we feature two thought provoking articles by experts with whom we work:
From Hong Kong, Andrew Kinloch comments on developments in China’s Belt and Road Initiative and in particular on the stresses and strains created by the rapid pace with which projects are being implemented. Given the enormous scope of the BRI and the numbers of players involved, it looks as if experts in a range of disciplines may have a busy few years ahead.
Closer to home, Robin Bryant, one of the most experienced banking experts currently practising, discusses the issues involved in conducting experts’ meetings. Robin draws on his experience of numerous meetings (which include a couple with myself) to suggest a number of ways in which they can be conducted as productively as possible.
As lawyers return from summer vacations, we anticipate a continuing busy workload and welcome your enquiries for experts in our core areas of banking, investment and insurance disputes.
