Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Expert Witnesses

Chris Osborne is co-chairman of the EMEA Region and the global head of FTI Consulting’s economic and financial consulting practice, and is based in the London office. Prior to this Chris was the European managing director of LECG LLP; before that, he was the head of Arthur Andersen’s economic and financial consulting group. Mr Osborne has over 30 years’ experience in bringing economic and financial analysis to complex commercial and regulatory disputes.

During the course of his career Mr Osborne has been involved in over 150 cases of litigation and arbitration, covering loss of profits claims, post-acquisition disputes, insurance claims and restrictive trade practices. He has worked on regulatory issues in the electricity, gas, media, post, rail, telecoms, and water sectors, working for regulators, incumbents and new market entrants, in the UK and more widely in Europe.

He has given oral evidence on nearly 30 occasions – in the UK’s domestic courts, as well as in London, Paris, Stockholm, Geneva and Singapore in ICC, UNCITRAL and ICSID arbitrations. He has also given evidence in the US tax courts, the US–Iran Tribunal and the then-Restrictive Trades Practices Court, and in front of the then-Monopolies and Mergers Commission.

WWL says: Chris Osborne is a "fantastic guy, the senior statesman of the expert witness market in London". He is "very user-friendly, convincing in hearings and solid under cross-examination".
