What does an Expert Witness perform in Lease Interpretations?
The first thing to remember is the Expert is not a lawyer. As a non-lawyer, the expert cannot interpret the provisions of a lease legally. The Expert may interpret the lease only based upon the custom and practice in the commercial real estate industry. Therefore, the Expert must provide sound advice to parties based upon Industry Standards. The second thing to remember is the “Judge” is one in the courtroom who will interpret the lease. The Expert may educate the Judge delicately on custom and practice in the Industry.
Why is it Important to Employ an Expert Witness for Lease Interpretation?
The Expert Witness’s job is to save you time and money fighting a legal battle you may lose or win. Is the expert there for the lawyer to provide him with custom and practice in the industry on the way a lease may be interpreted?
