The cost of litigation is continuously accelerating. When a litigator needs to make use of an expert, that adds another level of complexity to the process. And, when the number of valuation and damages cases being filed continues to rise at both state and federal levels, more experienced experts are being needed in all areas of valuation and damages cases. In this program, CONSOR experts will provide insight into the expert’s discipline and work product; an overview on how to manage the process of using experts during the process of arbitration, mediation, or litigation; and how to successfully handle the growing amount of Daubert challenges. CONSOR Chairman Weston Anson wrote the book Expert Witnesses, Valuation & Damages: The Expert’s Point of View published by the ABA, which he hopes will help improve the level of communication between lawyers and experts.
