Session 1 - Mind the Gap
Huge disparity often arises in the assessment of damages between two parties' experts,which leave the tribunals a difficult job to determine an appropriate amount to award.Based on the results of a recent research conducted, PwC will explore the reasons behind the differences between experts, choice of methodologies, and the measures that can be taken to bridge the gap. The presentation will be followed by a case study in which the audience will be asked to identify solutions to close the gap between the experts.
