GBRW Expert Witness webinar presentations

GBRW Expert Witness has three presentations which are designed for litigation and banking departments in law firms and which we understand may count towards CPD. Each normally takes around 30-40 minutes plus Q&A. Timing is flexible and can be set to fit in with lunch or the start or end of the working day.

The first deals with the issues facing lawyers in identifying suitable experts in financial sector disputes. It covers the following headings:

  • How do law firms identify suitable financial sector experts?
  • Sector specific issues in banking, investment and insurance disputes
  • Problems facing instructing firms – and solutions
  • Trends in financial sector litigation, based on our analysis of approaches from law firms

The second is an overview of issues currently facing banks, drawn from our own consulting and expert experience. It is organised under two headings:

  • Banking sector: Winners and losers over the past 9 years
  • What’s worrying banks? Major issues facing the financial sector and how these have evolved over recent years.

The third is a more specialised presentation for law firms involved in the field of trade finance:

  • Trade Finance: “When Deals Go Wrong”
  • Trade finance dispute areas, including credit decisions, deal structuring, Letters of Credit/Documentary Collections and insurance
  • Case studies drawn from our own experience as trade finance bankers and experts
  • “Red flags”
