Perth Airport vs Qantas – RBB expert testifies before the Supreme Court of Western Australia
RBB Economics Partner George Siolis provided oral testimony under cross examination before the Supreme Court of Western Australia, in a dispute over charges for aeronautical services provided by Perth Airport to Qantas.
In addition to his oral evidence, George prepared an expert report and participated in two “conclaves” with the expert economist for Perth Airport. The report set out an economic methodology that could assist the court to determine the fair and reasonable remuneration that should be paid by Qantas to Perth Airport. That methodology was viewed favourably by Justice Le Miere.
George was instructed by Minter Ellison, acting for Qantas. He was assisted by London partner Dr Iestyn Williams, and by Jackson McDonough and Lindsay Robinson in RBB’s Melbourne office.
