Experts – Independence and Duty


20th July 2021 10:00 - 10:50 AM BST

Dana v Freudenberg is the latest in a line of cases of ‘car crash’ expert evidence and just another, albeit extreme, example of the breakdown of the primary duty of experts to the Court. Samuel Townend QC provides a review of recent authority on the topic and raises the question of whether the principles of the Ikarian Reefer reflected in the CPR can be made to work or whether a new approach is needed. This is followed by a discussion on the problems and possible solutions between Samuel and Marcus Taverner QC.
