The Brief

The brief is the most important starting point for you, as an expert, to commence engagement and get traction. Analysis of the case file in line with your area of expertise, case strategy, requirement and scope early in the process is crucial. The quality of data and detail captured, its format and presentation, the way in which it’s interpreted are key to the outputs within the report and the success of the project.

Concert mandates that all briefs are given both verbally with the engaging parties and then followed by detailed written instructions outlining the obligations of the expert, the scope of the engagement, the issues arising from the dispute including any supporting artifacts or information required, available or requested to initiate the process. A project or engagement manager will work alongside the Expert and legal team to ensure project commencement and integration are seamless so as to achieve maximum traction in the shortest period of time.
