Choosing an Expert Witness with the Right Amount of Experience
When you are choosing an expert witness for your case, it’s important to make sure you find an expert who has the right amount of experience for your needs. Searching for a witness for your banking industry case can be complicated, so it’s important to find an expert witness who has relevant experience to your case but isn’t too overexposed. By finding someone who has the right amount of experience for your needs, you are sure to successfully integrate an expert into your case.
Anyone who has ever hired an expert witness for their court case knows that it’s important to hire an expert who has spent time working as a witness in relevant cases, as well as one who hasn’t been working as an expert so long that they seem like some kind of financial industry mercenary that will say anything that he or she is getting paid to say. During the interview process, it’s important to request a detailed CV, as well as their latest rule filing. While reviewing this information, you can see if your potential expert has been compromised.
Furthermore, while discussing the case with your potential expert witness, you should inquire if they have ever spoken about the issues at hand. When they have offered opinions or done writings on the subject at hand, it’s possible that they have offered contrary opinions. If this comes up during your case, it could discredit your expert witness. Spend some time researching any articles your expert witness has written to look for any of these opinions before you hire them to be part of your team.
