HKA supports development of new advocates and experts in Asia in collaboration with dispute resolution firm Delos

12th February 2021

HKA is delighted to work in collaboration with Delos to deliver a series of training events that will help develop the next generation of law firm advocates, as well as HKA’s next generation of expert witnesses.

The ROAP Asia – 2021 Edition programme is the first of this year’s programmes covering Asia, EMEA and Latin America. It brings together the next generation of testifying experts with the next generation of international arbitration advocates, overseen by leading practitioners. Mentees in the programme are set to gain theoretical and practical knowledge of advocacy and particularly cross examination of experts.

As well as sponsoring the event, HKA’s Jonathan Humphrey, Hamish Egan, Olesya Prantyuk and Michael Laming will be actively participating in the Asia sessions. Jonathan will be teaching a segment on how to work with experts for a hearing, and Hamish, Olesya and Michael will act as experts in the practical sessions. Colin Johnson sits on the global steering committee for the ROAP programme.

Jonathan, recognised by WWL as a Global Elite Thought Leader, said: “Where damages are to be awarded, the quality of advocacy can have a material impact on the quantum of the award. HKA is delighted to support this programme and work with the future leaders in arbitration to develop their advocacy skills.”

HKA experts help to resolve disputes in expert determination, mediation, adjudication, arbitration and litigation. Experienced as party or tribunal appointed experts, the firm’s experts can advise and, if needed, give evidence under cross-examination –including concurrent evidence or ‘hottubbing’ – in jurisdictions around the globe.

The firm’s subject-matter experts have vast first-hand experience spanning many industries and an international track record of achieving the best possible outcomes for our clients.
