Placing experts for pending litigation is what we here at Round Table Group have been doing for over 27 years. We are passionate about discussing our process of locating, assessing, and engaging the best and most qualified expert witnesses. In the second episode of our podcast, Engaging Experts, we delve into this fundamental element of our business.
Our team of expert search professionals has placed thousands of successful expert witnesses over the last quarter century. Many litigators take the challenge of expert search on themselves, however there are significant benefits to having a company like Round Table Group handle placement.
Dan Rubin, our National Business Development Manager, explains, “An integral part of practicing law as a litigator is finding the right expert. However, they have limited time available to truly conduct a comprehensive, rigorous, and thorough search for the right expert on their case.” The search process is more nuanced then simply finding a potential candidate. It takes time to conduct outreach, await responses, follow up with multiple candidates, schedule interviews, and assess their credentials and ability to testify.
These processes are something that Round Table Group has perfected, because that is all we do day in and day out. As a result, attorneys receive unprecedented attention to the details of an expert search which results in hours, days, or sometimes weeks of non-billable time saved.
There is a common misunderstanding in our industry that expert witness search and referral is just about the network. However, it goes beyond the existing connections and into a search methodology that has been refined and optimized.
Inherent in any litigation is a laundry list of variables and considerations on behalf of the attorney. Working with an expert witness search and referral firm ensures that legal teams can optimize their time by offloading search tasks to industry experts such as Round Table Group. Our decades of experience in the industry helping litigators weigh all considerations ensures that time isn’t wasted going down dead ends.
This topic of evaluating a case and placing an expert is one that we delve much deeper into on our podcast, which you can find here.
