Consulting and Testifying Experts

GFE will provide experts that match your precise requirements.

GFE’s experts are selected carefully prior to any formal entry into our Expert Resource Hub. Our constantly expanding family of experts provide an unsurpassed breadth and depth of knowledge across all areas of banking and finance, on both the sell and buy-side. Most have operated at senior MD or partner level.

GFE identifies your exact requirement at an initial consultation and then provides one or more experts to give you a complete 360-degree analysis of the contentious areas. Using our years of experience, GFE can assist its experts with the production of an Expert Report, and with preparation for depositions and trials.

Consulting Experts

Our experts are able to provide assistance where contentious matters are perhaps yet to be explored or less relevant due to the nature of the inquiry. They can provide product and other knowledge to legal firms to assist in the preparation of a claim such as the construction of a damages model, or in the defence of a matter which may not require a full testifying role. Our involvement in the process of legal discovery can assist in the identification of relevant documentation, as we can provide both market knowledge and apply our smart discovery software.

Testifying Experts

Many of our experts have proven track records testifying, and our experience in contentious work remains unsurpassed within our peer group. GFE provides an over-arching framework of quality control and guidance to its outsourced experts. This helps reduce costs as Directors of GFE provide “light” touch oversight throughout the life cycle of any given case ensuring your expert remains effective at all stages.

Bespoke Expert Teams

In many cases, a single expert is not enough to satisfy your requirement. At GFE, we can assemble and manage bespoke teams of experts who can apply their combined experience to map institutional personnel, processes and systems that advance effectively specific case matters, in particular the process of discovery. We have an unparalleled track record in large scale case management.
