TAE is working with HKA and Freshfields to present this webinar which reflects on the lessons learnt in 2020 on the topic of virtual advocacy and giving expert evidence in the virtual environment.
The Covid-19 pandemic brought about a near overnight change to how litigation and arbitration have been conducted. The global shift to virtual hearings has been remarkable, both for how quickly and widely they have been embraced, and for how successful many have been. The past 12 months have, however, been a steep learning curve for all involved, particularly those conducting proceedings and giving expert evidence.
Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer partner Jane Jenkins, counsel Tom Hutchison and global hearings lead, Stephani Mbonu will join TAE Chairman and HKA, partner Derek Nelson for an insightful panel discussion to share their experiences, lessons learned and views on future trends concerning the giving of expert evidence in a virtual environment.
Topics to be discussed by the panel include:
- effective cross-examination and expert witness conferencing from behind a screen;
- the challenges of giving expert evidence in virtual hearings;
- how the set-up of hearings can aid success; and
- future trends for remote evidence and virtual hearings.
