A flexible and cost-effective approach
Having to instruct different experts in different jurisdictions can become disproportionately costly even for relatively wealthy clients.
For that reason, our organisation has developed an approach that facilitates the instruction of a single expert (or single joint expert) in the jurisdiction in which the financial claim has been made. This “Lead” expert, then works with other MGI Worldwide members in other jurisdictions who assist with the collation of financial information and who advise on local financial, tax or accounting issues.
The Lead expert then prepares a report, which although reliant on the information and local knowledge of our members in other countries who have assisted in its preparation, expresses opinions that are exclusively those of the Lead expert. This avoids the cost of having to import foreign expert witnesses for the purposes of cross-examining them.
