Experts in International Arbitration
The role of expert evidence has become essential in today’s complex international arbitrations, with the outcome of many proceedings turning on a “battle of experts”. Concurrently, a professional class of experienced experts focusing on international arbitrations has emerged, in turn giving rise to thorny issues respecting impartiality and independence, duties owed to the tribunal, conflicts of interest and confidentiality. In view of these developments, various conceptual and practical questions related to the role and conduct of experts in arbitration are becoming of crucial importance for counsel, arbitrators, the courts and participating experts themselves.
This year, the Swedish Arbitration Days will bring together some of the most renowned and prominent arbitration practitioners and experts from around the world to discuss some of the key issues arising in relation to the use of experts in international arbitration.
Robin Oldenstam, Gisela Knuts, Domitille Baizeau, Sophie Nappert, Richard Kreindler, Matthew Weiniger, James Hope, Anders Reldén, Tore Wiwen-Nilsson, Jean-Claude Najar and Pontus Ewerlöf
