Let me pose a question to the attorneys reading this article: if you mentally run through your roster of expert witnesses and consulting experts, does it look similar to the Paul, Weiss new partner class announcement that was pictured in the New York Times this January? I’ll go ahead and venture a guess… yes.

The deposition of an opposing party's expert witness can be the single most important deposition in a lawsuit. A successful deposition can have a number of consequential impacts on a case, including setting up a Daubert motion to exclude all (or at least some) of the expert's opinions, and making the party proffering the expert witness rethink the strength (or lack thereof) of the merits of its claim or defense.

Resolution of construction disputes oftentimes involves the unravelling of complex issues, and requires the analyses and opinions of expert witnesses in various industries related to the project. For these reasons, retaining an expert consultant as soon as litigation is imminent can truly be a difference-maker in a party’s pursuit or defense of construction litigation claims.

Arising out of what started as a foreclosure case, a Michigan Court of Appeals panel ruled in a published opinion that licensed professionals acting as expert witnesses owe the same duty to their party as they would to any client, and witness immunity is not a defense against professional malpractice.

Whether you’re working on a medical malpractice case, a large-scale pharmaceuticals litigation, or anything in between, at some point, you’ll need a medical expert witness—or several.
