Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Expert Witnesses

Philip Haberman is senior partner at Haberman Ilett LLP. He has specialised in forensic accounting since 1990, spending 22 years as a partner in Big Four firms, before setting up Haberman Ilett LLP in September 2013. For the past two years, he has been Who’s Who Legal’s Expert Witness of the Year.

Philip has been actively involved in some 300 matters including commercial disputes, shareholder disputes, investment treaty claims, transaction-related disputes, and disputes arising out of accounting and financial irregularities. He has given oral evidence on more than 60 occasions, before international arbitration tribunals under LCIA, ICC, ICSID, UNCITRAL, Swiss, SIAC and ad hoc rules, as well as UK courts. He has also carried out many expert determinations to resolve disputes.

Clients and counsel have described him as “an absolute pleasure to work with”, adding that he “couldn't have had a better team”.

He has a degree in mathematics from Cambridge University and qualified as a chartered accountant in 1980. He is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, a founder member of the Expert Witness Institute, a professional member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, and a CEDR-accredited mediator. He is also a trustee of the British Institute of International and Comparative Law.

WWL says: Philip Haberman is considered one of the leading figures in the research worldwide. "No lawyer wants to have to cross-examine Phil,” says one source. “He is so level-headed and calm and exudes absolute credibility."
