Frontier recognised as a top expert witness firm

Frontier Economics has been recognised as a top 5 expert witness firm globally by Global Arbitration Review (GAR) in the GAR 100 Expert Witness Firms’ Power Index.

We were the highest climber in this years’ index, moving from 23rd in 2018 to 4th in 2019.

GAR’s Power Index looks at information gathered from international arbitration hearings to quantify the activity of expert firms over a two-year period. Using data reported by GAR 100 law firms, the model assesses the average and median size of claims handled by expert firms, and weighs the number of appearances at hearings, the number of experts featured in GAR’s Who’s Who Legal Expert Witness list and those voted as Thought Leaders in industry surveys.

Christoph Riechmann, Director in Frontier’s Energy practice, and an expert witness featured in GAR’s Who’s Who Legal Expert Witness list said, “It is fantastic that Frontier have been recognised as one of the leading expert witness firms by GAR and to have been listed in the top 5 firms globally across all sectors.”
