Complimentary webinar presented by Ronald Levine, EAS Consulting Group Independent Consultant and General Counsel with Herrick, Feinstein, LLP
As highly regulated industries are subject to more claims and litigations, and with growing agency challenges to ingredients, processes and branding, the target company’s regulatory compliance is often a key issue in presenting a successful defense. An expert witness’ opinion, report and testimony will play an essential role in mounting the response.
For attorneys, choosing a knowledgeable and experienced expert witness is of paramount importance. Unlike attorneys who are schooled in the world of litigation, experts often come from academia, the government and industry, and are not familiar with the unique skills required to be an effective witness.
Join EAS Consulting Group’s Independent Consultant and General Counsel at Herrick Feinstein LLP, Ronald J. Levine, for a one-hour complimentary webinar on the role, expectations and required skills for being an effective expert witness.
The webinar will provide an in-depth overview of:
- The discovery process and the role of the expert
- The engagement process of becoming an expert
- How experts are utilized in investigations, trials, and arbitrations
- Projecting expertise as part of written reports and oral testimony
- The business of being an expert witness
