The Impact of Liverpool Victoria Insurance Co Ltd v Zafar

The expert’s primary duty is to the court, whether in written or oral evidence. But closer examination of the case invites questions as to how an expert might legitimately change an opinion, from appointment to final submission. How must experts arrive at the final report and how should they document their processes?
