Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Expert Witnesses

James Nicholson founded and leads FTI Consulting’s 25-strong Paris disputes and investigations team, coordinates the firm’s international arbitration practice in the EMEA region, and is a member of the firm’s EMEA leadership team. James’ work primarily involves issues of the identification and valuation of lost profits, and the valuation of businesses, financial assets, including shareholdings, and other assets, and of wasted costs.

James is additionally president of the standing committee of the ICC’s international centre for ADR, which advises the centre in the application of the ICC’s Expert Rules.

James has testified before commercial and investment treaty tribunals on 25 occasions in relation to such cases, with between
€1 million and €4 billion in dispute. Among a wide range of other matters, James has recently acted as expert in a number of BIT and commercial cases involving the natural gas industry, and recently supported a MENA region government in a multibillion-dollar telecoms acquisition. James’ practice is global, but much of his recent work has involved parties from the MENA region, francophone countries or both.

James is a frequent presenter at industry conferences, often presents to law firms on damages and expert issues, and has acted as an expert witness at advocacy workshops organised by the Foundation for International Arbitration Advocacy (FIAA), the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb), and with a number of individual law firms.

The CFA Institute has awarded James the right to use the chartered financial analyst designation. James holds a master’s degree in public policy from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, where he was a Fulbright scholar and focused his studies on business, government and finance. James was awarded first-class honours in his BA from Oxford University in philosophy, politics and economics.

WWL says: James Nicholson stands out as one of the leading expert witnesses in the French market, and is highly regarded by respondents who note, “He definitely knows what he’s talking about.”
