Dealing with Evidence “What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence” – Christopher Hitchens
Evidence management is critical to the outcome of a case. Proper consideration, control, and assessment of evidence are essential to enable a party to prove its case and to enable the tribunal to decide that case. In this event Jonathan will review and address the handling of evidence from the viewpoints both of the parties to a case and of the tribunal.
