Mark Solon, MD of Bond Solon interviews top barrister, Roger Mallalieu of 4 New Square, about expert witness fees. Questions include:

  • What should an expert do if the solicitor simply refuses to pay.
  • Can experts say no to accepting instructions?
  • What can experts do if solicitors want to change the expert's terms and conditions?
  • Can experts refuse to send the report to the solicitor or refuse to attend court unless they receive payment first?
  • Can experts withhold a current expert report from a solicitor who owes money from a previous case?
  • Can the expert claim payment if the matter settles on the steps of the court and the expert is turned away?
