Cases often come down to a battle of the experts.  When an issue in a case is too complex for a lay fact-finder to understand intuitively, experts are critical to a successful verdict.  But when both sides have equally qualified experts making directly opposite conclusions, what makes one sideâ€ÿs experts more convincing than the other?  This CLE program will provide insight into managing and leveraging experts for optimal results.  Starting from the beginning of how to locate and choose the right expert, and moving into the management of expert testimony and reports, this program will lay a broad foundation for working with experts.  It will also cover the important issue of discoverability of communications between lawyer and experts, and best practices for ensuring that your discussions with experts are not disclosed.

• Federal Rules governing discoverability of expert communications and drafts
• Best practices for communicating with experts
• Locating and retaining the right experts
• Managing experts for best results

Section Chairs: Andrew Argyris, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP & David Seidel, Jones Day
