Instructing a joint expert is standard practice is all forms of litigation (as well as non-contentious matters) to help parties inform themselves about specific features of their dispute or agreement. However rarely do parties seek a joint and impartial legal opinion.
Utilising the services of an experienced barrister to provide a joint and impartial opinion on a legal question, or questions relating to a specific point of dispute, can be extremely effective in bringing parties to the negotiating table. It is an effective tool when forging agreements between parties in non-contentious business dealings, so as to ensure that each party to the agreement is confident of the legal implications of any contractual term they may consider entering into.
