The newsletter of GBRW Expert Witness

November 2021


In this edition of Expertise:

We look back over 2021 and comment on patterns of enquiries and instructions over the year to date.

In our second article, Aysha Suzuki of Financial Markets Consulting & Resourcing provides an update on recent developments in the field of Cum-Ex trading disputes which have involved numerous European tax authorities, a subject which she previously covered in our November 2019 edition.

On a more sombre note, we were deeply saddened to hear the news of Robin Bryant’s death at the end of September after a long fight with cancer. We have known and worked with Robin since the mid-1990s and have included an obituary for him in this newsletter.

At the time of writing, we are waiting to see how the latest Omicron Covid variant will develop. While much of the media coverage in the UK has focused on Christmas festivities, the medium term implications for business and leisure travel in 2022 are of greater concern.

Experts working in our field have been less affected than many other professionals - much of our work was already being done remotely, so the adaptation to Teams, Zoom and other videoconferencing apps and to giving evidence remotely has represented a change in emphasis rather than a dramatic shift. However, almost all of us miss the formal and informal face to face contacts which make our work so interesting.
