In most business disputes expert witnesses are appointed by the court or by either party to support a judge in making his/ her decision or presenting arguments of the parties in a professional manner.
It is these opinions, which make judge give verdict or decide about the reasons of the parties and/ or about disputed amounts.
Appropriate preparation of loss estimate, difficult to be challenged on merits and presenting arguments clearly and in a way understandable to a judge are the factors that can make you win the case.
Similarly, undermining of logical, methodological and merit-based correctness of your opponent’s arguments or expert’s opinion or the expert’s professionalism allows you to gain advantage in the case, to reduce disputed amounts or even win a case.
Business dispute not only is a duel of lawyers, but also of experts of both parties. The winner is not necessary a party which is right, but the one which hired better lawyers and experts.
