WATCH: Insolvency Webinar: The use of expert evidence in insolvency litigation

Thursday 28 May 2020
11am - 12pm
Online, Zoom Webinar
1.0 CPD

We would like to invite you to join Daniel Lewis from Wilberforce Chambers and Chris Laughton from accountancy firm Mercer & Hole discussing “The use of expert evidence in insolvency litigation”.

Deployed correctly, expert evidence can be an essential tool in insolvency litigation.  At its worst, it may be deemed unhelpful and be ignored.  This webinar addresses the particular areas where expert evidence can be used to strengthen a case and the avoidance of mis-steps which may diminish its effectiveness.  The talk focuses on both the legal and the practical, as well as on the presentation of expert evidence at trial by reference to real-life examples.  This talk is of relevance and interest to both lawyers and insolvency practitioners active in insolvency litigation.

The webinar will address key issues around:

1.  When is expert evidence required or likely to assist in insolvency claims?
2.  The right (and the wrong) questions for the expert.
3.  Getting the instructions to the expert right.
4.  Use of expert evidence at trial.


The Zoom recording of the webinar can be found below.
