Expert Reporting • Testimony • Client/Tribunal Support • Mediation

The concept of independence is key to the provision of expert services.

It is essential that everyone involved - legal counsel, the client, and the tribunal or other adjudicating body - have full faith in in the expert's opinions.

It is equally important that the client and client's counsel also understand not just the positive aspects of their arguments, but also the areas where opposing counsel and experts are likely to want to try and exploit.

Given that expert subject matter is, by its very nature, specialist it is also crucial that opinions can be communicated in language and reporting that can be understood clearly by non-specialist audiences.

Expert work in the petroleum sector frequently requires both technical and commercial / financial topics to be addressed.  A key challenge when this occurs is to ensure a seamless understanding between the different subject matter experts, which can be challenging when these come from different firms.

Ulysses Petroleum Management has the expertise to cover much of the petroleum value chain, ensuring that when required such expert support and testimony can be provided by a team that are used to work together.  This means that they understand not just the words, but also the context and nuances of what each other are saying, ensuring that reporting is similarly coherent.
