Munger Tolles & Olson LLP, 1:15 PM GMT
Expert witnesses can often make or break your case. It starts with identifying the right expert and on-boarding them efficiently, effectively and at the right time. Then it is about using your expert to maximize your leverage in mediation or settlement discussions. Finally, presenting your experts effectively at trial – especially when handling complex technological or IP issues – must be carefully and thoughtfully handled.
This program will focus on enhancing the process of how to best use an expert witness. Panelists will discuss considerations and potential pitfalls involved in locating an effective expert, preservation of confidentiality in settlement discussions, how to present complex technical and scientific expert testimony, and how to break down complex issues for effective, direct, cross and redirect examinations on technical subjects.
