Expert Consulting

EcoShelf identifies critical scientific issues in a matter and conducts searches for the best-qualified experts for testimony in negotiations, contested cases, and litigation. We work with our legal team to develop the sharpest possible and most credible expert testimony. We work with experts and the legal team to develop effective presentations of the testimony at depositions and trials. We train experts for deposition and trial testimony by conducting exercises and trial runs.

 
We evaluate possible infirmities and gaps in the purported expertise, and testimony, of experts proffered by the other side. We assist the legal team in preparing for depositions of opposing experts, and fact witnesses testifying on scientific and technical aspects of cases. We work to develop sound bases for arguing for either disqualification of the experts or exclusion or limitation of the proffered expert opinion.
