In our one-minute #AskTheExpert Digest, we ask Roy Andrew, Managing Director in our Stirling Construction Solutions Team, why a quantum expert is required in formal dispute resolution when most parties already have a commercial resource.
The one thing that can be guaranteed in relation to a dispute in the construction and engineering sector is that it will be about money. Everyone wants it but nobody wants to pay it. The role of an expert is not to replace existing commercial resources, after all, the role is one of independence. Rather than being aligned to one or other party, the expert’s duty is to the court or tribunal.
