NERA Economic Consulting is pleased to announce that eight of its experts have been recognised as leading practitioners in arbitration by Who’s Who Legal.

WWL: Arbitration 2019 singles out arbitration lawyers and expert witnesses known for their expertise in resolving complex international disputes. WWL’s research, along with nominations from peers and clients, identified eight NERA experts as leading names in their field with expertise in both commercial and investor-state disputes. 

Five NERA experts were included in the Expert Witnesses section: Alan Cox, Christian Dippon, Richard Hern, Jeff Makholm and Chudozie Okongwu. Their inclusion in this directory signals that they are recognised internationally for the quality of their testimony in arbitration proceedings.

For the first time, WWL identified 30 individuals as the future leaders of the arbitration expert witnesses market. Three NERA experts were identified as the top of their generation in international arbitration:

  • Erin McHugh, Associate Director, who was recognised for impressing market sources with her excellent work assisting clients in high-profile commercial and financial disputes, where she provides high-quality expert testimony.
  • Robert Patton, Associate Director, who was singled out for his “extensive knowledge and great ability as an economist” according to sources, who also highlight his “real mastery and grasp of cases”. He is praised for his “excellent response times” as well as his “creativity and thoughtfulness”.
  • Clara Segurola, Senior Consultant, who won high praise from respondents who consider her “an extremely bright, personable and smart individual”.
