The speakers will address how energy companies have managed the impacts of the current global reality and attempted to mitigate their risks going forward.

Panel 2: Getting to the Truth About Witness Evidence: Practitioners Confess

The panel will lead an interactive discussion and invite the audience to participate in a series of hypothetical scenarios regarding choices around the preparation and presentation of witness evidence. How might counsel’s strategic plan for witness evidence change depending on whether the hearing will be in-person or virtual? What practical steps might be taken by counsel to improve the value or persuasiveness of witness evidence? What would arbitral tribunals like to see more of, or less of, from counsel when presenting witness evidence? What steps can arbitrators take to allay concerns about being able to properly assess the credibility and significance of witness evidence in a virtual environment?
