Experts

BDT employs full time Registrars to manage and oversee BDT's appointment and expert determination services. The Registrars will appoint the most appropriate and available expert determiner from BDT's panel. The Registrars will take into account the amount at issue, the complexity of the matters at issue, the geographical location of the parties, and the subject matter of the dispute so far as those factors may be relevant, and any particular requests or requirements of the parties.

All BDT's expert determiners have been appointed to BDT's panel because of their extensive knowledge and expertise in building and construction law, coupled with their extensive knowledge, skill and experience in expert determination.

A nomination will be made, and a notice of willingness served on the parties typically within 24 hours of receipt of a properly completed application form, which may be completed easily and simply online.
