This two (2) part series will identify and address several key issues when considering (i) whether to retain an expert witness and (ii) which expert witness might best address your litigation needs.

The decision as to whether to retain an expert, when to do so, and which particular expert(s) to retain may be crucial to the outcome of a litigation. 

There are a host of issues to consider relative to experts. The failure to plan, or the failure to plan in an effective and timely manner, relative to experts may likely result in a litigation outcome that is less than positive for one’s client.

Part II will address issues such as:

          •   The “real” expertise of an expert witness
          •   The scope of the expert witness opinion and the need for boundaries
          •   Challenging the qualification of an expert witness
          •   Challenging the admissibility into evidence of the expert’s report
          •   Challenges of the expert based on prior cases
          •   The reliability underlying expert witness evidence
          •   The critical need for effective oral/written communication skills on the part of an expert
