Whether a case involves scientific or economic issues, effectively using an expert witness is crucial to defending the corporate cli¬ent. Disabling the other side’s expert is also a sure-fire way either to dispose of entirely or drive down the value of a plaintiff’s case. In this presentation, we will cover strategies and tactics for effec¬tively employing experts in litigation, including ways to prepare for an opposing expert’s deposition. In addition, we will review recent Daubert opinions addressing experts’ failures and discuss the devas¬tating impact such decisions have on the litigation as a whole.
