What are your expert determination services?

The High Court of Australia in Shoalhaven City Council v Firedam Civil Engineering Pty Limited 1) recently cited with approval the following statement.

  • The evident advantage of an expert determination of a contractual dispute is that it is expeditious and economical.
  • The second attribute is a consequence of the first: expert determinations are, at least in theory, expeditious because they are informal and because the expert applies his own store of knowledge, his expertise, to his observations of facts, which are of a kind with which he is familiar.2)

Our Mr White has conducted numerous expert determinations ensuring that the parties have avoided the expense and inconvenience of litigation.
