Tips and Traps When Working with Economic Experts
Hyatt Regency Chicago, 12:30 PM EST
Expert economic testimony has become increasingly important in antitrust cases. Working effectively with economic experts, though, goes beyond just compliance with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26, Federal Rule of Evidence 702, or Daubert. This program will focus on practical issues that arise when working with economic experts, especially in the expert report phase. For example, how far in advance of a report filing date should you hire an expert? What does it mean for the expert to have “considered” facts or data under Rule 26? When does the expert’s backup material need to be produced and in what form? What is subject to discovery and what is not? When should depositions be scheduled in relation to the filing of the report? When and how can an expert change the answers in his or her deposition transcript?
