Nick Henchie (26 August) states: “It is possible that more use will be made of jointly appointed experts, which could not only save time and costs but will probably lead to earlier settlement of cases.” This is most interesting.
In response to Alan Danieli’s difficulties in getting clients to pay up, reported in Building earlier this year, Tony Bingham (13 May) proposed the concept of an “arbitral investigator”. Well, for “expert” in Nick’s article, read “legal expert” and we are nearly there.
Mr Danieli, could you have started a crusade?
It is clear from many articles that the current system is fundamentally flawed and the word “justice” is a misnomer.
