Abstract

It is trite that the law does not usually recognise a fiduciary relationship beyond established categories. However, can an expert witness that has been contractually engaged to deal with a specific issue in the context of arbitration owe a fiduciary duty to its client? The case of Secretariat Consulting Pte Ltd and Others v A Company, which is the subject of this note, considered this question.
