An expert witness is someone whose level of specialized knowledge or skill in a particular field qualifies them to present their opinion about the facts of a case during legal proceedings.
The main activity of steelexpertwitness.com is to provide steel expert witness support in order to help resolve steel sector legal disputes.
Our own expert witnesses typically have many years of operating or consulting experience in the steel sector. They are well-placed therefore to provide independent opinions on technical or commercial matters relating to iron & steel.
This experience includes all areas of steel production, including raw material preparation, ironmaking, liquid steelmaking, casting and rolling. Our capabilities also include wide experience of commercial disputes and arbitrations concerning pricing, delivery terms, transport, contract performance and product valuation for insurance or compensation purposes. Our experts also have a good understanding of the obligations that are normally expected of the expert witness role.
Our Consultants are all billed out at a very competitive daily fee rate. After you contact us, we will prepare a letter of engagement (LoE) that identifies the probable experts involved on your case, in a document that explains their daily fees, and estimates the expected assignment duration (where appropriate). Our letter of engagement also defines any fixed costs and expenses that may be agreed between us (e.g. for meeting attendance or for preparation of an initial written report) and clarifies any follow-on fees where relevant. The LoE also explains our standard payment terms. You thus have a full understanding of the expected costs prior to our commencement of any work.
