Expert evidence is frequently used in disputes when an independent third-party assessment of a specialist professional area is relevant to the outcome of a dispute. As technical, financial, and factual issues become more complex and sophisticated, the expert's role in arbitration becomes increasingly important. Tribunals have employed various methods of expert evidence presentation including, but not limited to, party-appointed experts, tribunal-appointed experts, and joint expert testimony, also known as 'hot-tubbing'.

The top industries in Korean-related disputes are construction, intellectual property, and finance. Disputes in these industries often involve complex technical and factual issues requiring expert assistance. As such, there is high interest in how to manage experts in a cost efficient manner.
