When to call on an expert?

When there are disputes, the parties often appoint an expert. The expert can assist the parties with assessing the technical side of the dispute.

Independent expert or technical advisor?

Experts can be appointed by the courts in civil as well as criminal cases. Parties can mutually/contractually agree to appoint a specific expert if a dispute arises. In these cases, it is possible to contest the expert investigation and the expert acts as an independent expert. A party can, however, also unilaterally decide to appoint an expert or technical advisor. In this case, the expert will help defend the interests of the party who made the appointment.
